Tuesday, June 19th, 2012 at 6:41 am

It’s now day ten of a search for a missing pilot in northern Minnesota and crews say they’ve expanded their parameters now looking south of Silver Bay.

The Civil Air Patrol reports that 11 planes and 35 volunteers actively searched the North Shore for 67-year-old Michael Bratile again on Monday. The Lakeville man was reported missing Friday, June 8th. The air patrol has had no promising leads but say they have no immediate plans to call off the search either.

Bratlie and his small plane disappeared during what was supposed to be a trip from the Twin Cities to Duluth and back.
