A plane that had been missing since December was found in Yosemite National Park.

The single engine plane was spotted by a park visitor near Vogelsang High Sierra Camp. 

The area is in the rugged high country of the park.

The plane was largely intact and pilot Nicol Wilson's body was recovered.

Wilson had taken off from Santa Barbara and was headed for Mammoth Lakes when the plane crashed during a storm.

The wreckage was not located and the search had to be called off for the winter.
