Steamboat springs, Colo. (AP) Authorities in Colorado confirm that wreckage spotted by a hiker in the Rocky Mountains today was that of a plane carrying a Texas family that never returned home.

Summit County Sheriff's officials say Thomas Paul Jacomini Jr. was piloting the four-seater Cessna 182 when it left Steamboat Springs on Friday.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Paulette Horr says Jacomini's wife, 8-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter were also on board.

Sheriff's officials say there were no survivors of the crash on the continental divide.

FAA spokeswoman Karen Byrd says the plane was headed to Sugarland, Texas, which is a suburb of Houston.
