RAPID CITY (AP) -- More than 150 Civil Air Patrol cadets and senior members from the Dakotas and elsewhere are taking part in a search-and-rescue exercise in western South Dakota.

The three-day exercise beginning Thursday caps a week-long event that teaches cadets leadership and emergency services skills.

Officials say practice scenarios likely will include searching for missing people and missing aircraft.

Other agencies such as the Red Cross, Salvation Army and National Guard also are taking part.
