HEADLAND, Ala. (AP) - A week of searching has failed to turn up a small airplane and two men missing in southeast Alabama.

A vintage aircraft left Headland bound for Eufaula on Sept. 16 and never landed.

Extensive searches have since been performed on land and in water including Lake Eufaula, but authorities haven’t found anything.

Officials with the Civil Air Patrol say cellphone signals were used to narrow the search zone to an area of about 40 square miles.

Henry County Sheriff William Maddox says the search is now concentrating in a wooded area near the Chattahoochee River.

Authorities identify the missing airplane as a green Piper Cub made in 1942. The sheriff identifies the missing men as Steven Alec Haase of Dothan and David Michael Marlow of New Brockton.
