August 4, 2019

CARP LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a pilot is dead after a small plane crashed in a remote area of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

WLUC-TV reports Sunday that cellphone location data helped locate the plane in a remote area of Carp Lake Township. The pilot, who wasn’t immediately identified, was pronounced dead at the crash scene.

A search began Saturday after the plane departed from the Gogebic County Airport but didn’t arrive as scheduled at the Ontonagon Airport.

The NTSB said Saturday night that it’s investigating the crash of the Piper PA-28 in Ontonagon.
