With the help of Google, the relatives of the occupants of a Cessna that crashed over two years ago in Arizona believe they have found the wreckage in the mountains. They have set up an organization called MAST, the Missing Aircraft Search Team to assist in further searches. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/04/26/AR2009042600077.html
