VALDOSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities say a search is on for the wreckage of a small plane that crashed in south Georgia.
Lowndes County Sheriff Chris Prine tells WALB-TV that the plane crashed Monday night in Lake Park.
Authorities say the pilot left the Valdosta Airport at 8:30 p.m. Monday and told authorities by radio that he was having some type of problems.
About 50 people were searching in the Twin Lakes area on Tuesday, and a Georgia State Patrol helicopter was called to assist them in those efforts.
It was not immediately known how many people were aboard the small plane.
