Searchers are still looking for a Minnesota man who was supposed to have flown to Hallock, Minnesota on Friday night.

The Civil Air Patrol had crews out at about 7:30 this morning and they will continue to search until dark.

The 10 aircraft and 5 ground teams have been searching for Andrew Lindberg of Farmington for several days now.

Lindberg took off from an airport in Lakeville, Minnesota enroute to Hallock on Friday.

The last communication with Lindberg was through a text message he had sent to his family saying the flight was going well... that message was sent from around the Staples, Minnesota, area still 260 miles from Hallock.

The Civil Air Patrol says volunteers have come from several hours away to help in the search.

Lt. George Supan: "yesterday we had 12, today we already have 10 scheduled in and that could be increased as the day goes on.">

Lindberg just received his pilot license this fall.
