GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) — Helicopters and ground crews are looking for a small airplane that went missing in Alabama during a flight between Georgia and Mississippi. 

News outlets report that a plane with one person aboard disappeared from radar Thursday night northeast of Birmingham in Etowah County. The aircraft was reportedly flying between Tupelo, Mississippi, and Calhoun, Georgia.

Searchers didn't find anything overnight, and at least one state helicopter joined in the hunt on Friday. The search is concentrating on a heavily wooded area.
