BOONE COUNTY, Ind. (April 12, 2015) – The missing airplane belonging to an Indianapolis man was recovered Sunday in Boone County. Glenn Foy, 58, of Indianapolis was last seen on April 3rd, flying a Yak 52 Airplane out of Eagle Creek Airpark.
IMPD sent out an alert about the missing man on Saturday, and Civil Air Patrol searched for the plane and the pilot through the night using cell phone data, radar data, and plane transponder frequency.
“It was the forensic analysis of the radar data and the cell phone information that pretty much got us to the place we needed to be,” said Lieutenant Colonel Tim Turner with the Civil Air Patrol.
The NTSB is on its way to the crash site to investigate.
The Boone County sheriff said the area is very rural and, “It does not surprise me that nobody saw or heard this plane.”
Foy is a Marion County resident, but his girlfriend lives in Boone County. Foy’s body has not yet been recovered.
