McCALL, Idaho (KBOI) -- A plane with three people on board has gone missing near Donnelly, the Idaho Transportation Department said Wednesday.

ITD says the missing airplane is a white Cessna 206 and has a pilot and two passengers on board. The aircraft left McCall and was heading toward the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness.

The Idaho Army National Guard has dispatched helicopters to an area east of Donnelly based on the aircraft's latest transmitter signal. Officials say poor weather conditions and snow have hampered search efforts.

A search will continue in the morning.
