As the sun rises this morning in West Virginia, crews will resume their search for a missing plane from Southern Illinois.

The FAA says authorities from Harrison, Wetzel and Marion Counties are searching for a Cirrus SR20 aircraft based out of Southern Illinois Airport. The aircraft took off from Delaware Coastal Airport on Tuesday – it was heading to Flemingsburg Kentucky.

Members of the Carterville community are asking for prayers for Bill and Pat Searcy, the couple believed to be on the plane when it went missing.
