Multiple news outlets report the plane crashed not far from the Wendell Ford Airport near the Perry-Breathitt County line Thursday evening in Lost Creek. The small plane went down around 6:30 p.m.

Investigators on the scene were combing through the wreckage and trying to figure out what caused the crash.

Witnesses say pieces of the aircraft were visible in trees and on the ground.
