ANCHORAGE, Alaska - The Latest on the crash of a small plane in Alaska (all times local):
A spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board in Anchorage, Alaska, says two investigators are on their way to the site of a small plane crash that killed the two pilots and the only passenger.
Clint Johnson says the investigators were expected to reach the village of Togiak (TOH-gee-ak) at around noon. They will accompany Alaska State Troopers to the mountainside crash site.
The Ravn Connect flight that left Quinhagak (KWIN-a-gahk) for the 70-mile flight to Togiak crashed on Sunday.
Johnson says weather conditions at the time of the crash are not known. The agency will review recorded data and seek information from other pilots.
Troopers describe the crash site as rough, steep and challenging. Reaching it will require a helicopter flight and a hike.
Investigators will be heading to the site where a plane carrying three people crashed in a remote area of western Alaska.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says investigators from that agency and the National Transportation Safety Board are expected to head to the site Monday morning. The plane crashed about 200 miles northwest of Anchorage.
Alaska State Troopers say no survivors were found at the crash site, which was in rough terrain about 12 miles northwest of Togiak.
Gregor says the plane was carrying two crew members and one passenger.
The troopers' helicopter crew located wreckage of the plane near the coastal village of Togiak.
National Transportation Safety Board spokesman Clint Johnson tells KTVA that the Cessna 208 operated by Ravn Connect was en route to Togiak from Quinhagak, about 70 miles away.
The company reported the plane missing Sunday afternoon.
