GA Pilot, Plane Missing En Route To NC

Officials say the search continues for a single-engine plane and its pilot, who went missing during a 35-mile flight from Georgia to North Carolina.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said Saturday the Cessna left Cleveland, Ga., for the Andrews-Murphy Airport in western North Carolina about 10 a.m. Friday. She says law enforcement and air patrol are looking for the plane.

Wanda Allison says her husband, Bill Allison, is an accomplished pilot who runs the North Carolina airport in the Nantahala Forest. He took no passengers on the flight.
