RENO, NV - The Washoe County Sheriff's Office has released the victims' names from a fatal plane crash just north of Reno.

They are 29-year-old Paula Hincapie and 41-year-old Hector Moreno of Everett, Washington. The pilot was 47-year-old Eric Ling, of Roseburg, Oregon.

Ling's mother, Jeanette Ling, says her son was hired to fly the Washington couple to New Mexico.

Roseburg Municipal Airport officials say a flight plan was filed for Saturday from Roseburg to Reno. The wreckage of the Cessna 172 was found Tuesday evening north of Reno, just yards from the California border. Investigators believe the plane crashed Saturday, though they don't know why. Weather may have been a factor.
