The Sierra County Sheriff's Office says it has found a small plane that went missing last month in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. 

Deputies say someone found the wreckage on Tuesday in a remote area near Yuba Pass in Sierra County. Deputies say the bodies of 53-year-old Brenda Jane Richard and 54-year-old Mark Steven Richard were also found inside the wreckage. Deputies say the family of the Santa Rosa couple has been notified. 

The Socata TB-20 Trinidad took off April 17 from the Truckee-Tahoe Airport in Truckee and never arrived at its intended destination of Petaluma Municipal Airport.

More than 117 CAP volunteers, 15 CAP aircraft and 12 CAP vehicles participated in an extensive search that eventually ended without success.

    With the area finally seeing some more winter weather this week, REMSA officials are reminding people to be prepared for anything, during the colder temperatures. So far this winter, REMSA has only responded to about five calls regarding hypothermia and frostbite. Fortunately, that number is down from around 19 this same time last year. But, officials say that is no reason to be lax about winter weather preparedness.
