Last Wednesday, a graduate student rented a Cessna 172 aircraft from the University of Michigan flying club and departed from Ann Arbor Airport on a flight plan to Harbor Springs, Michigan. According to the Daily Mail, the plane flew north almost 500 miles (with no stops along the way) until it crashed north of Lake Superior, in the woods of Ontario, Canada. When police got to the crash site, there was nobody in the aircraft and no footprints in the snow around the crash site.

So where's the pilot?

Good question. 'We were unable to locate the whereabouts of the pilot." said Sgt. Peter Leon of the Ontario police. It's now been a week and still no sign of the pilot.
