GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Authorities say two adults and two children were killed when the private plane they were traveling in went down in western Colorado.
A statement from the Garfield County Sheriff's Office says the plane carrying the family of four was traveling from Fort Collins to Utah. The sheriff's office was asked to search for the plane early Saturday morning.
The statement says the plane's last reported location was about 9 miles north of Rifle, near Baxter Peak. That's about 170 miles west of Denver.
The statement says searchers found a "large debris field" around 11:37 a.m. Searchers were able to land and found that no one had survived.
The sheriff's office is trying to get ground crews to the area.
