Officials find missing float plane

    Admiralty Island, Alaska (KINY) Alaska State Troopers have confirmed that a float plane missing since August 9, 2008 has been located by a hunter on the Island.

    Brian Andrews, the Alaska deputy commission for revenue at the time, and his son, Brandon, 24, have been missing since the crash.  Trooper spokesman Tim DeSpain told KTVA News that the tail number on the aircraft located Wednesday matched that of the Cessna 182 float plane.  He said the remains of two people were reported in the wreckage.  A positive identification is yet to be made.

    A massive search effort was made after the crash which lasted for weeks.  The wreckage was found near Young Lake in an area of tall trees and thick brush.  NTSB investigators plan to be at the sight sometime today.
