DELANO, Calif. (AP) — A search is under way for a helicopter that went missing in Central California.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the helicopter was returning to Delano Airport in Kern County when it disappeared around 6:15 a.m. Wednesday. It was among three helicopters that were supposed to be conducting frost control on a local field. The two other helicopters returned to their base.
Gregor says one of the pilots who came back was unable to contact the missing pilot by radio.
Sheriff’s officials are searching the area.
