Plane Crash Wreckage Found in Sierra County

Sierra County authorities have found the missing plane that crashed in rugged terrain a little more than a month ago. A search had to be called off a couple of weeks ago because of too much snow in the area, but last week, the Sheriff’s Department got a citizen report of a crash in a remote area southeast of Yuba Pass in Sierra County. It was determined that the plane was the one flown by 53 year-old Brenda Richard of Santa Rosa and her husband Mark Richard, who was the passenger. The plane took off from Truckee on April 18 headed for Petaluma.
