CODY, Wyo. (AP) - A missing single-engine plane with two brothers in their 80s on board has been found crashed on a mountain in northwest Wyoming.

The Park County Sheriff Office says the plane was found Monday morning on a rugged, snowy mountain just outside Yellowstone National Park.

However, the fear of an avalanche has prevented rescuers from reaching the crash site, which is at about 9,900-foot elevation. So officials can’t determine the condition of the occupants.

The 1963 Mooney M20C was last seen Tuesday departing Yellowstone Regional Airport in Cody. On board were 84-year-old Robert L. Zimmerman of Huntsville, Alabama, and 86-year-old Ward H. Zimmerman of Seattle, Washington. The plane was reported missing Saturday, and the search began Sunday.

The brothers were headed from Cody to Twin Falls, Idaho, and then to Seattle.
