HERNANDO COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

The search for a missing pilot ended early Tuesday because of bad weather in Hernando County.

Crews searched an area west of U.S. 19 for 74-year old Theodore Weiss, but could not find any sign of him or his plane.

Crews conducted the search after receiving reports of possible signals from an emergency locator transmitter or "E.L.T.".

Weiss took off from the Dunellon Airport in Marion County on Saturday, April 5, but never made it to the Zephyrhills Regional Airport.

Crews have been searching in Citrus and Hernando Counties for Weiss.
