Members of K9 Search and Rescue
Team Inc. were asked to join in the search for a downed aircraft
that crashed near Silverton, CO on Saturday, December 3,
2011. The single-engine plane was flying from Durango to Aspen
when it crashed Saturday afternoon. Local officials say the
crash site was about 1½ miles north of Silverton. None of
the victims' names have been released, and the cause of the
crash was unknown. The Socata TB-21 left Durango at about 1:30
p.m. Saturday. About 40 minutes later its emergency beacon
signal was detected near Silverton, The Denver Post reported.
Temperatures in Silverton dipped to 4 degrees between Saturday
night and Sunday morning, and 8 to 10 inches of snow had fallen
at the scene after the crash, San Juan County Emergency Manager Kristina
Maxfield said. The plane crashed in a rugged, heavily
forested area up to 11,000 feet above sea level.
