Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 2:33pm


The wreckage of a plane containing the body of a missing Santa Barbara County man has been found in Yosemite National Park.

Nicol Wilson disappeared December 17th, on a flight from the Santa Ynez Valley to Mammoth Lakes.

A search at the time failed to find any sign of the Solvang man, with the efforts eventually being called off because of heavy snowfall.

A visitor to the park spotted the plane’s wreckage.

Park rangers hiked to the scene, confirming the aircraft was the missing plane, and discovering the remains of the missing man inside.
