Further details about operation plans were not released as to not “impair the effectiveness” of the investigation.

An official update is expected on Monday.

The Colorado Division of Homeland Security & Emergency Management said there was a report of a drone coming in dangerous proximity to a medical helicopter on Wednesday. The drones reportedly have 6 foot wingspans, which makes investigators think they don’t belong to a hobbyist.

State officials hope the operator using drones will come forward to help clear up the confusion.
