MENA, Ark. (AP) - Searchers looking for a missing Arkansas Forestry Commission pilot and his aircraft found the wreckage of a decades old plane crash - but no sign of the currently missing pilot and plane.

Commission spokeswoman Adriane Barnes said Wednesday that searchers on Rattlesnake Mountain in Polk County found the wreckage of a plane - giving brief hope that missing pilot Jake Harrell and his plane had been found.

Barnes says searchers soon learned that the moss-covered wreckage they found was discovered and recorded years ago and that no remains were found with it. She said she had no other information about the old crash.

Harrell and his plane disappeared Friday and Barnes says the search will resume Thursday morning along Harrell’s suspected flight path from Oden to Wickes in western Arkansas.
