Heber Springs pilot missing

A 71-year old pilot who left Heber Springs bound for Oklahoma is missing.

His name is Elmer "Ray" Broadbent.

A search was called off late Tuesday night in Oklahoma for Broadbent's plane after getting a report of a possible plane crash.

His wife says her husband left the Searcy airport Monday afternoon and she got a call from Scott County saying they were searching for his flight path.

She says he was heading for Elk City, Oklahoma but never checked into his hotel there.

He has been a pilot since he was 19-years old.
