SILVERTON, Colo. (AP) — Investigators are asking the public to turn in any evidence they find from a plane that crashed in the Colorado mountains, killing four people.

San Juan County emergency services manager Kristina Maxfield said Wednesday investigators are not worried people will destroy evidence because the area is so remote. The National Transportation Safety Board is asking any hikers or skiers who come across parts of the plane to notify authorities.

The final two people killed in the crash were found Tuesday as federal investigators arrived to search for clues.

The crash killed three bank employees and a fourth person on their way to a Christmas party.

The National Transportation Safety Board said investigators are suspending debris recovery until snow melts, possibly until summer.
