MENA — The search for a missing Arkansas Forestry Commission pilot and airplane has resumed despite snow and ice that have hampered the search and officials hope to use helicopters in the search.

The commission says the search resumed Saturday for Jake Harrell and the plane he was flying when he disappeared while searching for wildfires in western Arkansas last week.

The commission says recent snow may make the aircraft difficult to see — but they're planning to use helicopters Saturday afternoon to help in the search of a wide area in western Arkansas that includes about 950,000 acres.

Officials continue to focus the search along the normal flight path from Oden to Wickes that was Harrell's intended flight path.
