Gannet Affiliate (WBIR) -- Officials said a plane that went missing Sunday evening may have crashed in Monroe County, Tenn.

A spokesperson with Blount County Sheriff's Office said Monday a Tennessee Highway Patrol helicopter narrowed in on the remote, Indian Boundary Lake area during the search for the aircraft. Monroe County Sheriff's Office is now taking over the search and will have to hike into the area to look for the plane.

The FAA said there was only a pilot on-board the Dehavilland DHC-1 aircraft. The pilot was flying on visual flight rules and wasn't receiving air traffic control service. The plane left French Lick, Ind. but never reached its intended destination of Canon, Ga.
