MENA, Ark. (AP) - Helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft again took part in the continuing search for a missing Arkansas Forestry Commission pilot who vanished during a flight last week.

No sign of pilot Jake Harrell turned up during Friday’s efforts.

Helicopters and planes from the National Guard, State Police, U.S. Forest Service, Arkansas Forestry Commission, and Civil Air Patrol took part in the hunt on Friday. The Forestry Commission says the same fleet is to be in the air on Saturday.

Organizers also want to increase the number of ground searchers on Saturday.

The search is taking place over a wide area in western Arkansas that includes about 950,000 acres.
