She was taken to a local hospital with “non-life threatening injuries,” Patterson said. A resident in the area called 911 after the girl walked up to his house, telling him she had been in a plane crash.

“FAA air traffic controllers lost contact with a Piper PA-34 aircraft … shortly after the pilot reported engine problems, and told air traffic controllers that he was diverting to the Kentucky Dam State Airport,” said FAA Communications Manager Kathleen Bergen.

The twin-engine aircraft, which can seat up to six people, was found in Lyon County, about 30 miles east of Paducah, and less than 10 miles from the airport.

The Kentucky State Police say the plane was en route to Mount Vernon, Illinois, from Key West, Florida
