    Some bad news from my neck of the woods: Four people, including a reporter and a business reporter/copy editor at the Kalispell (Mont.) Daily Inter Lake were aboard a small plane that went missing Sunday night in western Montana.


    The reporters are Melissa Weaver, 23, originally from Billings, and Erika Hoefer, 27, originally from Beloit, Wis. The two men on the plane (including the pilot) are from Missoula.

    I'll be keeping these people in my prayers and hope for the best.

    Hoefer, according to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, is a Drake U. grad.

    Update, and it's not good. The plane was found today, and four bodies were found among the wreckage.

    Terrible news. RIP Melissa Weaver, Erika Hoefer, Brian Williams and Sonny Kless. All young people in their 20s who were out for a sight-seeing flight on Sunday over and around Glacier National Park.

    Weaver and Hoefer had both recently joined the Daily Inter Lake staff, in December.

    Details from the Kalispell Daily Inter Lake:

    So sad to hear this, especially because everyone in the plane was so young. RIP.
