SILVERTON, Colo. (AP) - Authorities are still trying to find two of four people killed when a small plane crashed in the southwest Colorado mountains.

According to the president of Alpine Bank, three of the victims were Alpine Bank employees on their way to a company Christmas party.

The San Juan County sheriff's office identified two of the victims as 26-year-old Jenna Rich and 24-year-old Tyler Black. Both worked for Alpine Bank.

The single-engine plane was flying from Durango to Aspen when it crashed Saturday afternoon.

Local officials say the crash site is about 1½ miles north of Silverton.
