4 aboard small plane that crashed in Colorado

Crews search for survivors after small-plane crash in Colorado; officials say 4 were aboard By The Associated Press

SILVERTON, Colo. (AP) ' Authorities say four people were aboard a single-engine plane that crashed this weekend in the southwest Colorado mountains.

More than 18 hours after the crash there was still no word on whether anyone survived. San Juan County officials say a search team was headed to the site Sunday morning.

The plane crashed at about 3 p.m. Saturday about 1 miles north of Silverton.

The search was suspended later Saturday because of bad weather. Temperatures in Silverton dipped to 4 degrees overnight and more than 3 inches of snow has fallen this weekend.

The names of the people on board haven't been released. Authorities say the plane was flying from Durango to Aspen.

Debris from the plane is scattered over a wide area up to 11,000 feet above sea level.
