The small plane was on its way back from Phoenix carrying Randall Wells, 8 year old Asher, and 3 year old Sara. The plane crashed sometime on Saturday in a rugged area in Panguitch, and was located by a search helicopter on Monday.
Randall Wells, a bishop of the Mount Jordan 3rd Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, was tragically confirmed to have been killed in the accident.
