REVELSTOKE —   Searchers are planning to return to an area in southwestern B-C today where the hunt continues for a small plane that vanished with two people on board.

    Navy Lieutenant Melissa Kia with the Victoria Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre says rescuers scoured an area about 18 kilometres north of Revelstoke yesterday with aircraft and ground crews, including search dogs.

     She says the searchers saw no signs of the single-engine aircraft before shutting down the search for the night.

     The plane was flying from Penticton to Edmonton on Saturday when it disappeared, and a spokeswoman for the rescue centre has said crews are searching near Revelstoke based on information from radar and a cellphone tower that picked up a signal from the pilot's phone around the same time the plane was reported missing.
