GARFIELD COUNTY - The Garfield County Sheriff's Office was notified of a private plane crash killing a family of four. According to reports the family was flying from a Fort Collins-area airport to Moab, Utah, when their single-engine plane crashed about in mountainous terrain near Glenwood Springs.

Relatives on Sunday said in a statement that 47-year-old Jeff Makepeace, his 45-year-old wife, Jennifer, and their twin 10-year-old children, Addison and Benjamin, died in the crash late Friday.

Civil Air Patrol and Classic Air were asked to assist with an aerial search but due to low hanging clouds the search was delayed. The last reported area the plane was seen was nine miles north of Rifle.

Garfield County Sheriff's say the plane was located early Saturday morning 170 miles west of Denver, but established there were no survivors.

Federal authorities are investigating the cause of the crash, as the plane is a single-engine plane that can seat up to five passengers.
