Small Plane Wreckage Found In Calaveras County

Small Plane Wreckage Found In Calaveras County

The Calaveras County Sheriff’s Department reports that yesterday around noon search teams reported finding possible aircraft debris around one mile south of the last known radar point of missing pilot LeRoy Del Don Jr.  The area of the site was densely wooded and steep, and the aircraft appeared to have collided with one or more trees before coming to rest on a steep hillside.  One deceased person was located in the wreckage but due to the condition of the wreckage, neither the aircraft nor occupant was positively identified as being the missing Beechcraft and Pilot.  However, circumstantial evidence indicated that the wreckage was that of the missing Beechcraft.  Investigators remained on scene throughout the night and will work with National Transportation Safety Board upon their arrival later today.
