(AP) - The wreckage of a light plane with four Grand Ole Opry personalities aboard was found today about five miles west of the Tennessee River in west Tennessee. Sheriff Loye Furr said there were no survivors. Abcuard were singers Patsy Cline, Hawkshaw Hawkins and Cowboy Copas and the pilot, Randy Hughes who was Miss Cline's manager and a son-in-law of Copas. The Grand Ole Opry is a radio program broadcast by WSM, Nashville, which has attracted and developed top country and Western musicians for more than 35 years. The single-engine plane was returning the recording artists to Nashville after benefit performances at Kansas City, Kan. It stopped at Dyersburg, near Memphis, early Tuesday night to refuel. Hughes telephoned his wife in Nashville to say they would be home soon. The plane never arrived. Another opry star, Billy Walker, said at Nashville he intended to return with Hughes but came by commercial plane because the Hughes plane would carry only four.

Mrs. Haefeker, 37-year-old wife of a Forbes Air Force Base noncommissioned officer, was found last Saturday in their rural home al Wakaruska. She had been dead for a week. "It is my guess she died of natural causes," Dr. Paul Adams, Osage County coroner, said Tuesday. Shawnee County Coroner Dr. J. L. Lattimore said there is no way of learning how the woman died. "She could have died from a lot of things," Lattimore said. Haefeker, 45, was in the house when sheriff's officers found his wife's body. He was suffering acute effects of bilateral pneumonia and was taken to the Forbes AFB Hospital where he is listed in satisfactory condition. Find Girl Safe After Long Night JOPLIN, Mo. (AP)-A 12-year- cld girl was found alive and well this morning after she had disappeared from her home Tuesday night. • Sheriff's officers reported the girl, Sylvia Tonalee Bear, a full- bloc-led Indian, had spent the night in a shack on the Robert Newton farm, about a mile and a half north of her home. Barbara Newton, 15, spotted the girl walking on top of a chat pile on the farm. The Newtons invited her inside and later she was taken to her home. Her step-mother, Mrs. Tom Bear, said the girl was muddy and bore scratches, but appeared unhurt. She said a physician would examine Sylvia. Sylvia explained her overnight venture this way: She had gone out to feed her dog "Yaller," and, despite instructions, had unhooked him from his chain. Yaller took out after another dog and Sylvia followed on her bicycle. When the dogs cut across a field, she abandoned her bicycle and followed. The dogs got in a fight and she managed to get them apart. By that time she was lost but found the shack, which had been built as a play house near a pond. Yaller spent the night with the girl and was with her when she was found. The bicycle was found at a culvert on a country road. An extensive search was made of the area during the night.
