Two people are confirmed dead by Umatilla County officials after a single-engine plane crashed in Eastern Oregon.  The Bellanca plane took off from Dallesport, Washington on Saturday afternoon with three people on board. The location of that third passenger is still being looked into. Five Civil Air Patrol planes were called in Saturday, along with Umatilla County Search and Rescue spent much of Sunday searching the area south of Pendleton. Officials say the wreckage was found Sunday afternoon about 13 miles south of Ukiah, which is 50 miles south of Pendleton, Oregon. Investigators with the Federal Aviation Administration will be on scene today to investigate the cause of that crash.
