The airplane was substantially damaged at about 1340 Mountain time after impacting terrain following a missed approach procedure. The solo private pilot was killed. Instrument conditions prevailed and an IFR flight plan in effect.
While the flight was executing an ILS approach, ATC observed it was too high and not aligned with the localizer. The controller instructed the pilot to initiate the published missed approach procedure. The airplane was then observed to track northeast, consistent with the procedure, until radar contact was lost. The airplane was located about eight nautical miles northeast of the airport. It had impacted snow-covered pasture terrain, was extensively fragmented and had been consumed by fire.
