Search for possible plane crash called off

TECUMSEH — Authorities in Pottawatomie County have called off a search for a small airplane a caller said might have crashed there.

Tecumseh Emergency Manager Melvin Potter said 36 square miles were searched from the air and on land, but crews found no wreckage, leading them to end their search Tuesday morning.

Potter said a caller reported seeing “an elongated object” with white flashing lights that was on fire in the front heading over the horizon about 9:45 p.m. Monday. Potter said no one reported hearing or seeing a crash or explosion, however.

Potter said there have been no missing persons reports, and a check of local airports found no flight plans for the area had been filed.
