INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Federal marshals continue to search for an Indiana investment manager who they believe faked a distress call before parachuting from his plane over Alabama, leaving the aircraft to crash more than 200 miles away in Florida.
Thirty-eight-year-old Marcus Schrenker disappeared into the woods southeast of Birmingham, Ala., after jumping from his single-engine Piper Malibu. The plane crashed Sunday night in the Florida panhandle.
The only sign of Schrenker came in an e-mail to a neighbor calling the situation a misunderstanding.
U.S. Marshals spokesman Michael Richards in Birmingham says the agency is actively searching for Schrenker, although he declined to
detail where agents are looking or how the search is being conducted.
