WADENA, Minn. (AP) — Search crews turned up empty after another day of the ground and air search in northwestern Minnesota for a pilot missing since Friday.

Lieutenant George Supan of the Minnesota Civil Air Patrol says 11 planes and six ground crews spent Monday searching an area concentrated around Staples but stretching from Wadena to Hallock. He says the sunny weather made for ideal search conditions but brought no luck.

Family members say that pilot Andrew Lindberg of Farmington was the only person aboard the PA-28 Piper Cherokee that left the Airlake Airport near Lakeville on Friday. He was planning to go to Hallock, in northwestern Minnesota, to go deer hunting with his father. He never arrived.
