Polk County, Missouri: No downed plane found following report

Polk County 911 received a call from the reporting party at 7:53 p.m., who was actually passing through the area at the time and reported they had witnessed a plane that was in the area of the 4800 block of South 190th Road and was having engine problems; the reporting party identified it as a smaller, white plane.

The reporting party did not witness the aircraft hitting the ground and observed no other indications that the plane actually crashed.

Throughout the search we talked to residents who live in the area who had witnessed what appeared to be the same plane, but no one witnessed a crash of that plane.

We requested the Missouri Highway Patrol Plane and was able to search the heavily wooded area with nothing located.

Personnel from the Central Polk County Fire Protection District, Pleasant Hope Fire Protection District, Polk Rural Fire Department, Polk County Sheriff’s Department, and the Missouri State Highway Patrol participated in the search of the area.
