Cheyenne (AP)- Authorities have released the names of four east Texas men killed in a plane crash in the mountains of Wyoming.

Searchers looked for the plane for almost two days before they found the wreckage of the single-engine Piper toward sunset Thursday.

There were no survivors. Albany County officials said Friday those killed were 52-year-old Charles Ford and 29-year-old James Morgan, both of Marshall, Texas; along with 21-year-old Maverick Cayce, of Longview, Texas; and 65-year-old Billy Gee of Karnack, Texas.

The plane had taken off from Marshall, Texas, and was due in Casper on Tuesday evening. The plane went missing in foggy weather.

A pilot spotted the wreckage on Laramie Peak in a remote area of southeast Wyoming. The crash is being investigated and authorities plan to remove the wreckage.
