Search Comes Up Empty

7/27/11 – Despite a three-hour search effort that covered over a thousand acres of woods and marsh, Fond du Lac County authorities were unable to find a plane a farmer thought he saw go down in the Mt. Calvary area yesterday afternoon. Fire department off road vehicles and a Flight for Life helicopter were used to search the rough terrain. Nothing was found and the FAA reported no overdue aircraft. Sheriff Mick Fink says they had a similar incident in the Town of Osceola a few years ago when someone also thought they saw a plane go down and that search also turned up nothing. (KFIZ, Fond du Lac)
