BLOUNT COUNTY, Tennessee (March 24, 2014) – A small Indiana plane is missing after possibly crashing in Tennessee, just south of Knoxville.

An alert notice (ALNOT) was issued for a Dehavilland DHC-1 aircraft (similar to the one pictured). The plane departed French Lick early Sunday evening with one person on board.

The FAA notified local authorities and search and rescue officials when the flight did not reach its intended destination, Franklin County Airport in Canon, Ga.

The Blount County Sheriff’s Department conducted a land and air search in the area Sunday night, but they’ve suspended rescue efforts until 7:30 a.m. Monday.

The flight was flying on Visual Flight Rules (VFR) and  not receiving air traffic control service.
