Alaska searchers look for small plane with 3 aboard overdue on flight

Authorities says searchers in Alaska are looking for a small plane with three people aboard that was reported overdue on a flight from Anchorage to the small village of Takotna.

Carl Siebe of the Civil Air Patrol tells KTUU-TV that the plane left Anchorage about 10 a.m. Monday and was expected to reach Takotna -- a checkpoint on the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race -- at about noon.

Alaska National Guard spokeswoman Kalei Brooks Rupp confirms the plane was a Cessna 182 with three on board.

The Cessna was traveling with another plane, which reported it missing about 3 p.m. Monday. The overdue plane did not file a flight plan.
