Single-engine plane missing since mid-December 2012 found

The single engine plane that was reported missing over Yosemite National Park on Dec. 17, 2012, has been located, according to a statement from Yosemtie National Park.

The plane, which was largely intact, was spotted by a park visitor near Vogelsang High Sierra Camp on Saturday. The Vogelsang area is in the rugged high country of Yosemite National Park. 

 

Yosemite National Park Rangers hiked to the location of the plane on Sunday. Nicol Wilson, the pilot of the plane, was found deceased at the location. He has been positively identified. 

Wilson, who was flying from the Santa Barbara area to the Mammoth Lakes Airport on the east side of the Sierra Nevada, disappeared during a winter storm on Dec. 17, 2012.  After extensive searching of the Yosemite high country, the search was suspended for the winter. Yosemite National Park has searched extensively over the past several months, once conditions allowed for travel through the high country.
