The plane is private and can carry four passengers. The plane was traveling from Lethbridge to Kamloops. The two passengers are one male and one female.

 The passengers are identified as Alex Simons who is 21-years-old and Sydney Robillard who is 24-years-old.

The call letters of their piper warrior aircraft are CGDTK and the last known siting of their aircraft when was it was refueling in Cranbrook. The plane has had no contact with anyone on board since then. The RCMP in the area is investigating.

Canadian Forces Base Comox has crews searching for the missing aircraft and will continue to search for them. The military began the search Thursday and did not stop until dark. The military has done the same on Friday and will most likely do the same on Saturday.

A spokesperson known as Lieut. Greg Menzies said “It is quite a large area. It’s very rocky, very mountainous, heavily treed, so certainly an aircraft of this size is difficult to find." He also said that the search on Friday was cut short because of bad weather conditions and that the terrain of rocks and trees make for locating the rather small aircraft difficult. However, he did mention that the military is very hopeful that they find the plane soon.

There are search and rescue volunteers, Cormorant, and Buffalo helicopters involved with this search. The crew is expected to be sent out this Saturday again to continue the search.
