LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A pilot and passenger are safe after earlier reports that a plane had crashed near I-71 in Oldham County.

An hours-long search took place on Sunday near the Crestwood exit rest area after two witnesses reported that they saw a plane begin to go down.

Oldham County officials, however, tell WHAS11 they spoke to the pilot who said the plane actually landed safely at Bowman Field.

Though no one actually witnessed a crash, Oldham County Police and Fire took every precaution, sending several units to the scene and dispatching two air crafts to search for the plane.
