Larry Bothof

COOK COUNTY, Ga. (WALB) - Investigators in Cook County are still looking for answers after the body of 65-year-old Larry Bothof who was pulled from the wreckage of a small civilian plane earlier this week.  

We are told from representatives of the National Transportation Safety Board, or the NTSB, are still in the area, gathering parts, and continuing their investigation.

They are working alongside the Federal Aviation Administration to find out what exactly happened Tuesday that led to this crash.

We are also told that these agencies are requiring an in-depth examination from the Cook County coroner, about Buthof's death. 

The coroner shared that he does not have any information for release at this time.

COOK CO., GA (WALB) - The body of a pilot in a Cook County plane crash was found Wednesday morning, according to officials.

Larry Bothof, 56, of Colquitt County, was identified after his body was recovered at 11 a.m. Wednesday.

The body, initially found at 9:30 a.m., was found submerged in 7-8 feet of water, according to Brent Exum, Cook County Sheriff’s Office public information officer.

Valdosta Georgia Search and Rescue (GSAR) and Valdosta Sports assisted in recovering the body and the body was taken to the coroner.

The plane, a single engine fixed wing air raid, belonged to Bothof.

Officials found the plane has lost parts early Tuesday. 

A missing persons report was filed Berlin, which helped identify the pilot. 

The area where parts are being recovered is over a mile long, Exum said.

Most everything in the recovery area, Exum pointed out, is full of water up to 20 feet deep.

Another wreckage area was found Wednesday morning, Exum said.

The plane left Cook County Airport where it was housed, according to Exum.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are working with law enforcement to find what they can in the investigation.

The investigation is wrapping up for the most part, Exum said.

COOK CO., GA (WALB) - Law enforcement agencies are investigating after a small civilian aircraft crashed in Cook County on Tuesday.

According to Public Information Officer Capt. Brent Exum with the Cook County Sheriff’s Office, Emergency 911 received a call from a resident on Arthur Tillman Road who said he found items on his property that appeared to be from a plane.

The sheriff’s office, Cook County Emergency Management, Georgia State Patrol, fire personnel and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources all responded to the scene.

Exum said the plane that crashed had left the Adel Airport earlier Tuesday with a single pilot on board.

The crash happened in a slough, completely covered in water from recent rains, explained Exum.

Exum said attempts to reach the aircraft and the pilot continue with the assistance of the GSP Aviation Unit, but they have so far been unsuccessful due to the terrain and light restrictions.

The Federal Aviation Administration has been contacted and is headed to the location, according to Exum. 

The sheriff’s office is requesting that residents avoid the location around Arthur Tillman and Pike Creek Road until further notice in order to allow rescue efforts to continue.

COOK COUNTY, Ga. (WCTV) -- Authorities have confirmed that one person is dead following a plane crash in Cook County.

The Cook County Sheriff's Office says around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, they received a call from a homeowner reporting that they'd found a piece of debris that appeared to be from a plane. During the call, the homeowner located another piece of the aircraft with a tail number on it, which was then matched to a missing persons report out of Berlin, Georgia.

The missing persons report was for the owner of the plane, 56-year-old Larry D. Bothos, of Colquitt County. Bothos was reported missing on Tuesday after he didn’t show up for an afternoon appointment.

Officials say Bothos was a frequent flyer at the Cook County airport and had a hangar there.

Authorities responded to the scene and confirmed that the wreckage was indeed that of Bothos' plane. The debris field spanned approximately 2 miles in a wooded area west of Adel.

Around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, authorities located Bothos' body.

Authorities say Bothos was piloting the plane and was the only person aboard the Saberwing experimental aircraft when it went down in an area near Arthur Tillman Road.

Bothos' body has been taken to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Macon for an autopsy.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are continuing to investigate the cause of the crash.

COOK COUNTY, Ga. (WCTV) -- The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating what caused a plane to crash in Cook County.

The FAA released the following statement on Wednesday:

"A Saberwing experimental aircraft crashed in a wooded area in Cook County, GA. Only the pilot was onboard. Local authorities will release the pilot's name and medical condition. The FAA will investigate and the National Transportation Safety Board will determine the probable cause of the accident."

It is not clear at this time exactly when the plane crashed.

We're hearing that the plane went down in a rural area west of Adel near Arthur Tillman Road, which has since been shut down to allow officials to investigate.

A command center is currently set up near the scene along Pike Creek Road between McConnell Bridge Road and Quillie Jones Road.

Multiple agencies are on the scene including the FAA, the Cook County Sheriff's Office, the Valdosta Police Department, Cook County Fire Rescue and Tift County Fire Rescue.
