Police: Small plane crashes in Bass River State Forest, injuries unknown
State police say a missing small plane has been found in the Bass River State Forest in Burlington County, where it apparently crashed.
Authorities say the two-passenger plane left Salisbury, Maryland on Saturday, but failed to arrive at Ocean County Airport Saturday night as scheduled.
After attempts to communicate with the pilot were unsuccessful, the pilot's cellphone was tracked to the area where the plane was found.
A multiagency search began Sunday morning, and a Coast Guard helicopter crew spotted the plane a few hours later.
It is not clear if the pilot was alone in the plane or injured in the crash.
