From a source on the USCG Cutter Anacapa tasked with searching and recovering crash debris....The wing was found yesterday floating in two pieces separated about 5 or so miles from each other north of the assumed crash location. It was thought they had drifted with the tides. Also, there is mention by the FAA on site at Kake that there appears ice buildup on the wing surface may have played a role in the sudden lost of control. There was no mayday call, perhaps indicating there was no time for the pilot. We can’t disregard a medical issue affecting the pilot, hopefully the MedEvac1 crew will soon be recovered.

Cant help but recall the Martin Hartwell story from 1972. May the outcome be even more positive.

Sadly, its not looking good up here in Alaska. :( The weather has been really harsh and cold and they've been pulling debris out of the water. After this much time, the CG is just looking for bodies at this point.
