After having disappeared without any trace for four and a half months, an aircraft with the tail number N7469A was reported found in the Alaska Range outside of the Rainy Pass area this week and Alaska State Troopers, NTSB, and FAA investigators responded to the crash site on Tuesday.

“Remains found at the scene have been taken to the State Medical Examiner,” AST revealed.

The tail number of the aircraft match that of the red and white Cessna 172 owned by Timothy D. Twohy, who disappeared while traveling through the Rainy Pass area from Submarine Lake to the Wasilla airport on March 7th.
