A smallÂ aircraft with two people onboard has gone missing en route from Penticton, B.C., to Edmonton.
Victoria Joint Rescue Coordination CentreÂ spokesperson Katelyn MooresÂ said the single engine aircraft, white with burgundy stripes,Â left Penticton at 2:30 p.m. Saturday and was notedÂ as missing at 10:40 p.m. PT theÂ same day.
The pilot’s cell phone signal was last picked up twenty kilometres north of Revelstoke, B.C.
Search and rescue teams began looking for the aircraft Saturday night, focusing on the region between Revelstoke and Rogers Pass, but weren’t able to locate anything.
Bad weatherÂ in the area Sunday morning hasÂ hampered search efforts, Moores said.Â
