SILVERTON, Colo. -- Five people were killed in the crash of a small plane in the San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado, the National Transportation Safety Board said Monday.

The twin-engine Cessna 310 went down about 4:15 p.m. Sunday. The San Juan County Sheriff's Office said ground crews were able to locate the debris field and that three bodies had been located.

A Cessna 310 was reported overdue on a flight from Barstow, Calif., to Amarillo, Texas, and it's uncertain if it's the same plane.
