ELKO, Nev. (AP) -- Authorities today are trying to get to the site of a small plane crash in Elko County's Ruby Mountains.

Sheriff Neil Harris says the plane went down late yesterday afternoon in the rugged terrain.

A search and rescue team was able to observe the crash site from the air, but unstable weather made it impossible to rescuers on the ground. Authorities say the plane apparently hit a 10-thousand-500-foot peak and then tumbled into a ravine.

Harris says two people were believed to be on the twin-engine plane. No survivors were seen from the aerial survey of the site.

Harris says flight records indicate the plane was flying from California to Salt Lake City.
