MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - One of five people aboard an airplane that went missing in Idaho is from the Madison area.
Almost 100 volunteers and rescuers were expected to keep searching Thursday for Jonathan Norton of Sun Prairie and the other four missing people.
Media reports said the group spent Thanksgiving together, and their single-engine plane left Baker City Oregon on Sunday. It was heading to Butte Montana when pilot Dan Smith reported engine trouble over a remote area northeast of Boise near Yellow Pine Idaho.
Smith's sister Amber is engaged to Norton, and they've been planning to get married January 4th. Both go to BYU-Idaho, both major in accounting, and they expect to graduate next year.
Daniel Smith's wife Sheree and her father Dale Smith are also among the missing.
Norton's uncle, Matt Dayton, says he has asked people of various religions to pray for the group.
