GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Crews are looking for a small plane that went missing after taking off in western Colorado with four Canadian men on board.

The Piper Lance fell off the radar Thursday morning after leaving the Grand Junction Regional Airport on its way to Albuquerque. The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports the Civil Air Patrol is searching an area about 100 miles (161 kilometers) southwest of the city.

Lt. Col. John Henderson with the Civil Air Patrol’s National Radar Analysis Team says searchers have located the suspected radar track, which corresponds with electronic locator transmitter reports.

The plane is registered in Alberta, Canada.
