More than 100 searchers are combing through a wooded area near Richmond, Virginia, looking for the third occupant of a hot-air balloon that crashed in flames Friday night. The bodies of two other people have been recovered.
Witnesses say they heard cries for help from the passengers as the balloon touched a power line and burst into flames. The balloon and the basket holding the pilot also have yet to be located. The crash occurred ahead of a now-canceled weekend balloon festival in Doswell, about 25 miles north of Richmond.
