Missing Phoenix woman found deceased

Sedona AZ – On April 25, 2020 at approximately 8:00 in the morning, the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office responded to an Arizona Game and Fish Department officer call of a suspicious vehicle near Chevelon Butte in the Forest Lakes area. The vehicle was associated with a Phoenix police report of a missing person.

The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office, a U.S. Forest Service Law Enforcement officer and an Arizona Game and Fish officer, U.S. Forest Service firefighters, a CCSO Search and Rescue Unit handling search and rescue dogs as well as ground searchers, began a coordinated attempt to locate the missing person associated with the vehicle.

    Plane left Sedona Airport. (*SedonaEye.com editor: Both were found deceased at the scene of the accident. Authorities found the crashed plane near Williams airport west of Flagstaff early this morning. No other persons were reported aboard.)

    “The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO), deputies in Williams received a report of an overdue plane at around 6 p.m. Sunday night.
    The people onboard the plane were identified as 37-year-old Michael Gill and 38-year-old Joylani Roseann Kamalu, both from Vista, California. CCSO said one of their family members reported that they had not shown up to work on Sunday as scheduled. CCSO said the plane was scheduled to arrive at the Grand Canyon Airport in the Tusayan area at 9 a.m. after leaving the Sedona Airport earlier that day. CCSO investigators focused on searching for the aircraft at both airports.”
