Authorities in northwestern Utah say they've found an object in the Great Salt Lake that could be a small plane that's been missing since late last month.

A Cessna with two people aboard didn't return to the Ogden airport after a short sightseeing trip on Dec. 29.

Box Elder County Sheriff's officials spotted an object Saturday that could possibly be an aircraft.

A sheriff's scuba team and Weber County Sheriff's personnel planned to take a closer look at the object Sunday, depending on weather conditions.

Rob Dubuc, an attorney with Western Resources Advocates, explained the genesis of the case.
