Search Continues for Missing Helicopter and Pilot

NOVEMBER 7, 2005 - Posted at 3:16 p.m. CST

 

WEST MEMPHIS, AR -  A search for a missing helicopter was rejoined at dawn in west Tennessee, eastern Arkansas and northern Mississippi.

Crittenden County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy W.A. Wren said this morning that more than a dozen searchers had set out on all-terrain vehicles in the Bear Creek area near Marianna.  Wren says the search area is large and aircraft are also being used.

The department says Lee Catt of Marion was piloting the Bell Jet Ranger when it took off Saturday morning from a heliport in Marion and vanished on a flight to Cleveland, Mississippi.

The craft is blue, white and gold and bears the tail number N-331-T-A.
