PAGE, Ariz. -- The Civil Air Patrol in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah are searching for a small plane that was last seen leaving the airport in Page.

Television station KNXV reports the plane was carrying a father and son from southern California. The two were on their way to South Carolina.

The plane -- a 1961 Mooney M20B -- left Page early Friday afternoon. The Civil Air Patrol said it departed without a flight plan.

Patrol officials in Colorado said the plane had remained low for sightseeing outside of Page but hasn't been seen since.

A ground search team in Tuba City and communication team in Page are set up to aid in the search.
