AP â An Arkansas Forestry Commission pilot who went missing with his plane last month while patrolling for wildfires was found dead Tuesday in the wreckage of the aircraft that may have clipped the trees or a rugged mountain itself, the agency said.
The commission said the plane was spotted at about 4 p.m. Tuesday by the Civil Air Patrol and was confirmed by a state police helicopter, with the body of Jake Harrell found by a member of the National Guard who was lowered to the crash site from a helicopter, according to commission spokeswoman Adriane Barnes.
Today, Feb. 8, Elaine will celebrate her 100th birthday. A party will be held in her honor at the Magnet Cove United Methodist Church, 22292 Hwy. 51, today at 1 p.m. Her children are Ann Smedley (Dick) of Hot Springs and John Watson (Jan) of Conway. No gifts please. (Photo submitted)
