Search organizers said a mobile phone signal may be a clue to the whereabouts of a plane that went missing sometime late Wednesday or early Thursday near Sherbrooke, Que., along with its 22-year-old pilot.

Hind Barch was alone aboard a Cessna 172 owned by Cargair Flight Training School when it disappeared from radar.

According to the company, the aircraft was one of two that departed Mirabel on Wednesday evening. Cargair's president, Josée Prud'homme, said the pilots wanted more experience with night flights.

"They were to make a 'touch and go' in Sherbrooke if the conditions allowed it," Prud'homme said. "It wasn't a requirement. They were supposed to return to Mirabel."

Prud'homme said the two planes didn't get to Sherbrooke and that Barch's plane disappeared on the intended first leg of the flight, between Mirabel and Sherbrooke.

Prud'homme said Barch has her pilot licence and hopes to have a career in aviation.

"She is an extraordinary 22-year-old who hopes to become a professional pilot," Prud'homme said. "She's been with us for several months, that's why it's so emotional."

"It's a big family," Prud'homme said. "When there's an incident like that, we're all concerned about it because we all have the passion of aviation, so it's always hard and it's very emotional to see this morning."

A total of 50 Canadian Forces personnel are taking part in the search operation, coordinated by the Royal Canadian Air Force. Aircraft operated by the military, Sûreté du Québec and SERABEC, Quebec's aerial search and rescue organization, are also being used in the effort.

Prud'homme said she spoke with the pilot of the other plane, but she is unable to share details while the Transportation Safety Board is investigating.

Citizens who have information about this disappearance are asked to contact the Sûreté du Québec Criminal Information Centre at 1-800-659-4264.

A new app aims to significantly expand the search for missing children across Canada. The Missing Children Society of Canada is hosting the “MCSC rescu” app on its website, intended to recruit the public to assist law enforcement officials. Through the app, targeted alerts can be sent to anyone signed up to the program when children go missing. “We’re able to share information with the police and the public through easy-to-understand dynamic maps and push alerts to people in specific locations, even down to a street,” Amanda Pick, CEO of the society, said of the application developed by Toronto-based ERSI Canada , a geographical information system provider.
