DAWN, Missouri  -- A pilot is uninjured after his plane crashed in a field in Livingston county.

The Federal Aviation Administration alerted emergency crews of a possible downed aircraft around 3:53 p.m. Thursday.

Several agencies including the Livingston County Sheriff's Office, Missouri State Highway Patrol, and a few citizens began searching for the plane several miles southwest of Chillicothe.

For some time, responders were unsuccessful in locating the plane, but the pilot was able to walk to a nearby home and give his address over the phone.

The pilot, who is from Wisconsin, was then found around 5:02 p.m. a few miles southeast of Dawn.

The Highway Patrol and Federal Aviation Administration are investigating.

Federal authorities are investigating after a Wisconsin pilot apparently walked away from a crash landing Thursday afternoon in Livingston County.

Livingston County authorities received a report shortly before 4 p.m. of a small airplane that went down southwest of Chillicothe, Missouri.

Multiple agencies scrambled and Chilicothe police sent up a drone to search an isolated area near Avalon, Missouri.

Eventually, a captain with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office made contact with the pilot, who said he was in a field and could see a home about a quarter-mile away.

“At 5:02 p.m., the pilot was soon located a few miles southeast of Dawn and the pilot again reported being uninjured,” Sheriff Steve Cox said.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating the incident, along with the Federal Aviation Administration. Photos of the scene showed the plane largely intact following a landing in an open field.

There were unconfirmed reports that the aircraft was losing fuel prior to the crash landing.
