Pilot Went Missing Tuesday Afternoon
Crews searching for a Maryland pilot
who went missing Tuesday afternoon have narrowed their search to
Franklin County, PA, based on calls to the missing pilot's cell
David Weiss, 72, took off Tuesday right around lunchtime in his
Cessna 172 from Maryland's Gaithersburg Airport, on what officials
described as a routine proficiency flight. He was due to return to
the airport at 2:30, but failed to show.
Authorities believe Weiss is flying alone. They also said Weiss
landed briefly at Frederick Municipal Airport in Maryland before he
took off again en route to Gaithersburg.
A Civil Air Patrol spokesman told the Associated Press that
unanswered calls to Weiss's cell phone are being routed through a
cell phone tower in Saint Thomas, PA -- indicating he may have gone
down near there.
Crews have focused their search on an area near the cell tower,
to Franklin County Regional Airport in Chambersburg -- which lies
about eight miles east. Authorities believe Weiss may have tried to
land at the airport.
Weiss's aircraft is a blue-and-white 1970 Cessna 172L, registry
