FIRST ON 3: Crews find debris from missing plane

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

DUPLIN COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Duplin County emergency crews have found debris believed to be from a plane that has been missing since Sunday.

According to Duplin County Emergency Manager Reid Sutherland just before 10 p.m. crews located wreckage from a missing single engine plane about a half mile into the woods off of Doctor Williams Road and Best Road.

Duplin County Emergency Manager Reid Sutherland says that just after 3 p.m. Monday his office was notified by the North Carolina Highway Patrol that there was a downed aircraft near Kenansville.

Crews in Pender County stopped their search for the plane around 5 p.m. Monday.

Officials say the plane left from Albert Ellis Airport in Jacksonville Sunday morning and was headed to Michigan.

Crews tried to pinpoint a signal given off by an emergency locator beacon, which was picked up by satellites.

Investigators say the satellites that receive the signal are not completely accurate. They said they also had hits in Duplin County and one near Mount Olive.

Officials have not released the pilot’s name, but they say he is in the military and his family has been notified.
