WATERLOO, Ala. (AP) – Authorities say a small airplane crashed in a wooded area of northwest Alabama, killing the pilot.

News outlets report that an aircraft traveling from Dallas to Knoxville, Tennessee, didn’t show up on time. That prompted officials to use a signal to locate the cellphone of the pilot, who was the only person aboard.

A more than two-hour search that began late Wednesday located wreckage near a wildlife management area in extreme northwest Alabama.

Authorities said they’ve identified the pilot as a 69-year-old man, but they didn’t release his name immediately.
