RENO, Nev. (AP) — A 30-year-old pilot who's been missing since taking off from North Las Vegas on Sunday had borrowed the aircraft from its owner for a short weekend business trip but hasn't been seen since.

A Lyon County sheriff's dispatcher says a search for the single-engine Cessna plane is continuing Wednesday.

Plane owners Paul and Sharon Tueller say their longtime family friend and flight instructor Cory Marble had borrowed the aircraft Friday for a short trip down south.

They heard Monday morning that he hadn't returned.

An FAA spokesman says the plane departed from the North Las Vegas Airport about 6 p.m. Sunday and was last detected 78 miles southeast of Reno.

Paul Tueller says Marble lives in Reno and works for a medical transport company.
