BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Search crews have found the wreckage of a small plane that crashed into the woods on Bald Mountain in Vermont's Green Mountains, killing the pilot.

The Federal Aviation Administration said Monday the pilot was the only person on board the twin-engine propeller plane. He's been identified as 31-year-old Ramsey Sampson Ah-Nee, of Manchester, Connecticut.

State police say they began the search at about 6 p.m. Sunday after the FAA reported it had lost radar contact with the plane. It was flying from Burlington, Vermont, to Oxford, Connecticut, when the crash happened.

Search teams located the wreckage just after 1 a.m. Monday in a heavily wooded area in the town of Woodford in the southwestern corner of the state.

State police say Ah-Nee had more than five years of aviation experience.
