The flight plan of the brothers indicated that they departed from Cody, Wyoming with the intent on flying to Twin Falls, Idaho and then on to Seattle, Washington. Radar last detected the aircraft approximately 7 miles outside of east entrance of the Yellowstone National Park. Poor weather prevented an aerial search this weekend.
