Search crews in western North Carolina are looking for a plane that went missing Thursday night.
“The single-engine aircraft, which officials believe to have been occupied by a single passenger, was headed from Knoxville, Tennessee, to Aiken, South Carolina, but it never arrived,” the Asheville Citizen-Times wrote.
The last contact with the flight was at about 6:20 p.m. Thursday near the Whiteside Mountain area, WLOS reports. Crews are now searching in North Carolina’s Macon and Jackson counties, according to the station.
“Searchers are limited by the remote, rugged terrain and weather conditions.,” WSPA reports.
