Coast Guard searching Gulf of Mexico for missing plane

The Associated Press - January 4, 2018 9:13 am

FREEPORT, Texas (AP) – The U.S. Coast Guard is searching the Gulf of Mexico for a small plane that didn’t land at its scheduled location in Central Texas and stopped responding to air traffic controllers.

The Cirrus SR-22 took off Wednesday afternoon from a small airport in Oklahoma City after filing a flight plan to land in Georgetown, Texas, about 25 miles north of Austin.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford says the plane kept flying and was last observed on radar 219 miles northwest of Cancun flying at 15,000 feet.

The plane is registered to Oklahoma-based Abide Aviation.
