Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Hysong was last seen at 10:15 a.m., flying a rented 1993 Piper Cherokee Arrow from the Toledo Suburban Airport. He was supposed to take a twenty minute flight to Jackson, Michigan to take a test to become a flight instructor.
Hysong did not file a flight plan. The FAA air logs show that Hysong flew past Jackson and over Lake Michigan, where the plane disappeared an hour after take off. An extensive search that involved Sonar Imagery showed no signs of the plane or Hysong.
Since Hysong's disappearance, the FAA reports the plane's tail number, N15206, has been used on four occasions during radio checks or purchasing fuel, but nobody has actually seen the plane.
