SEARCHERS ARE MUCH WORRIED
Loss Of Another Plane And 3 Men In Search For Missing Aviators
FAIRBANKS, Alaska, Jan. 6 (AP) – With the loss of another plane and three men to add to their worries, the searchers for Carl Ben Eielson and Earl Borland, whose plane disappeared Nov. 9, today were held at a standstill by adverse fortune and fierce arctic storms.
Three powerful cabin planes, rushed here from Seattle and put at the disposal of arctic hardened Canadian pilots, were down one wrecked, one apparently lost and the other weather bound at Nualto, halfway point between here and home.
Eielson and Borland disappeared while flying from teller to fur trading ship Nanuk, frozen in the ice near North Cape.
Frank Dorbandt, Eielson’s flying companion, who a few days ago was withdrawn from the rescue work and ordered to take a rest, took off from Nome yesterday and flew 200 miles inland, hoping to sight Reid’s plane. Late last night from Solomon, 36 miles from here, where he was forced down, Dorbandt reported he had not sighted the overdue plane.

FAIRBANKS, Alaska, Jan. 6 – (INS) – Apprehension is felt here today for the safety of Capt. Reid commander of the Eielson-Dorland relief expedition, and his mechanics William Hughes and James Hutchinson. No word has been received of the missing trio since they hopped off from here Saturday for Nome. The trio was enroute to Nome to join in the search for Eielson and Earl Dorland who have been missing in the Arctic for more than a month.
