Missing Arkansas Pilot Found Dead

Jake Harrell's plane was located Tuesday morning near Glenwood.
MONTGOMERY COUNTY -- The Arkansas Forestry Commission confirms pilot Jake Harrell has been found dead. Harrell's plane was located Tuesday morning near Glenwood and ground crews were sent to the crash site. He had been missing since January 31 when he failed to check in after communicating with forestry commission central dispatch in Malvern.

"We finally know he's not sitting out there cold at night. Every night, leaving command, we all got to go home and be warm and have a warm dinner. It killed you every night thinking, I'm going home, but Jake isn't," said Adriane Barnes with the Forrestry Commission. Harrell was 34 years old and leaves behind a wife and son.
