More than 100 planes were in the skies until darkness forced them to return to their ports. They had concentrated the hunt in the vicinity of Cobblestone mountain, hoping to sight the plane or its wreckage and direct land forces to the scene to recover the bodies of the victims. Although heavy storms of the past few days had cleared away to some extent, searchers continued to be handicapped by the snow that covered everything in the mountain legions. Investigation late today of a report that a searching plane had sighted what appeared to be the charred wreckage of a plane in Elizabeth Lake canyon disclosed lhat the object probably was a burned mountain cabin.
