Search crews locate missing plane parts via drone after fatal crash in Minden

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue team has located missing aircraft pieces from a fatal plane crash.

Undersheriff Paul Howell says the SAR team used a UAV drone to search the area where a Piper PA-34 Seneca crashed east of Jacks Valley Road on Monday, February 21.

The pieces were located about a half mile south of the crash site.

The fatal plane crash claimed the life of 64-year-old Stephen Filice, of Minden.

Ian Gregor with the Federal Aviation Administration says the FAA lost radar and radio with a Piper PA-34 Seneca inbound to the Minden-Tahoe Airport from Bakersfield at 11:25 a.m. on Monday.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the FAA will continue to investigate the incident.
