Still no sign of the A-10 Air Force attack jet that's been missing since last week.
The plane mysteriously disappeared from a training exercise over Arizona.
The Air Force received about 20 reports of smoke and explosions in the mountainous Colorado area where it was last tracked by radar and visual sightings.

Pentagon analysis indicates the plane would have been running out of fuel by the time it reached the snow- covered central Colorado area.
