Search and rescue crews are combing eastern Lake County, for a pilot and plane that haven't been seen since last week.

48 year-old Tony Nichols took off in this plane from Lakeview Thursday night.

Officials say Nichols never arrived to his destination near Caldwell, Idaho.

"There was snow showers in the area, gusty winds - and the radar track shows that he made it almost to Hart Lake," said Klamath County sheriff Tim Evinger.

"That combined with the cell phone records, appears that he was somewhat near plush, or hart lake."

About 2 dozen aircraft, and over 40 searchers on the ground have been involved with the search effort.

Crews will continue that search Tuesday.
