Authorities say report of Ohio plane down unfounded, no wreckage found

CINCINNATI — Authorities have determined the report of a possibly downed small plane around Whitewater Township in southwestern Ohio was unfounded, after hours of searching.

Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil says deputies were sent to the township about 22 miles northwest of Cincinnati shortly before 8 p.m. Saturday after someone reported possibly seeing a two-seater aircraft dive toward the ground and then a plume of smoke.

Deputies and Whitewater Township fire and emergency crews searched by foot and by vehicles. The University of Cincinnati Hospital Air Care helicopter also participated.

The search was called off for the night around 11 p.m. and resumed around 8:30 today.

By 10 a.m., authorities had found no wreckage. They also say no airport had reported any distress signals or missing flights.
