Plane wreckage found in Trinidad

TRINIDAD, Colo. (AP) - The Colorado Civil Air Patrol says it has found what appears to be wreckage of a plane that crashed west of Trinidad in southern Colorado.

Colorado Civil Air Patrol Maj. Ed O'Brien says a crew had been flying over the area Thursday to check out a report of a signal from an emergency locator transmitter.

It's not immediately clear how old the wreckage is, and fading light Thursday night kept crews from determining details, including if there are any survivors. Rescuers planned to head to the scene from the ground early Friday.

O'Brien says early indications are that the plane is from North Carolina.
