BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Since 1972, a local man has been determined to find the remains of his brother and his brother’s plane that went missing.

Jerome Hogan’s brother, Billy, a pilot from Houlton, was 28 when he was flying his plane from Connecticut to Houlton. It disappeared in Maine during a storm. Drones have become the latest technology used to try to locate Hogan’s brother. He says he welcomes anyone who pilots a drone who would like to help.

”I know the boy- he would appreciate me doing this for him, and I’m doing it for the rest of my family for closure,” he said. “And we need help.”
