PAGOSA SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – Teams were searching northern New Mexico and southwestern Colorado on Tuesday for a missing single-engine plane with two people aboard.

The plane left Moriarity, New Mexico, on Friday bound for Pagosa Springs, Colorado, but had to turn around before landing because of bad weather, New Mexico State Police said.

The plane’s path was tracked as far as Buckles Lake, about 15 miles southeast of Pagosa Springs, officials in Colorado said.

Howard Guthrie, 55, and Melissa Watson, 42, were aboard, New Mexico authorities said. Both are from Albuquerque.

Authorities didn’t say who was piloting the Mooney M-20C. Federal Aviation Administration records list Guthrie as the owner.

Three aircraft and three ground teams searched in Archuleta County, Colorado, on Tuesday, the sheriff’s department said. A state police plane searched in New Mexico.

The missing plane’s route was tracked by radar and cellphone forensics, said Lt. Col. Mike Daniels of the Civil Air Patrol Colorado Wing.
