Crews turned up nothing Thursday in the search for 37-year-old Matthew Ahrens, his 34-year-old girlfriend Trista Meyer and her 9-year-old daughter Shyanne Lenz.
The trio has been missing since Sunday when their small plane disappeared over the skies of Utah. Clear weather Thursday aided the search which ended at dark. The Civil Air Patrol will resume efforts Friday morning.
A candlelight vigil was held in Gillette Wednesday night as word spread that the three were still missing. A Facebook page has been set up for people to leave thoughts and prayers.
