After a long, intense search in southern Utah for a missing plane, volunteers and law enforcement officers found the bodies of Bishop Randall Wells and his two children—8-year-old Asher and 3-year-old Sara. 

The family of an LDS bishop and his two young children who died in a plane crash released a statement Tuesday offering thanks for "the outpouring of support from the community." . . . 

Dano Gillette, Wells' brother-in-law, released a statement thanking law enforcement from Iron, Piute, Beaver, Garfield and Sevier counties and searchers who helped find the plane.

"We would like to share our love to all of the volunteers that came out the past two days to help search. And also those who expressed their love on social media," Gillette wrote. "We can't describe how grateful we are for the closure we received and that we were able to find the plane."
