Pilot of Missing Nepal Chopper is From Kansas, Family Says

The pilot of a Marine Corps helicopter that went missing in Nepal after an aftershock struck the country this week is from Wichita, Kansas, his family said Wednesday. Chris Norgren's father, Richard Norgren, said Marine Corps officials visited the family's home and informed them Chris, who was an assistant coach at Bishop Carroll High School, was one of the missing, NBC station KSN reported Wednesday. Six Marines and two Nepalese soldiers were on board the UH-1Y Huey helicopter that disappeared over Charikot, Nepal, Tuesday night while delivering aid to one of the hardest-hit regions of last month's devastating magnitude-7.8 earthquake that killed more than 8,000 people.
