The family of a missing Tahlequah native said possible plane parts have been found in the Bahamas.  Donna Grant and her fiance, Forrest Sanco, went missing after traveling to the Bahamas to get married.

They left last month in their own plane, and Grant's family said they realized something was wrong when she didn't return home to care for her pet.

They learned Sanco had never returned to his job at Lockheed Martin.

Grant had relocated to White Settlement, Texas, from Oklahoma. Family members traced the couple to their last known stop on North Eleuthera. There is no sign they ever made it to their final stop on Rum Cay.

The family posted:

Update: There has been a wheel and tire found that could possibly fit the type of plane that Donna and Forrest were flying. We are not 100% certain at this time...but we are having the private search plane focus on taking aerial photos of this area. Also, the Royal Bahamian Defense Force as well as the US Coast Guard are supposed to be out searching the area. We have family down there making contact with Authorities and have press. Please pray that these search efforts will turn up some answers! We are holding out hope for the best! Also, please pray that our family stays safe and the trip is successful!
