VONORE, Tenn - Officials in East Tennessee Monday said they have found wreckage from an aircraft that was supposed to land in Franklin County, Ga.

The pilot, who was the only person aboard, is dead.

The aircraft, a single-engine World War II-era de Havilland DHC-1, was reported missing Sunday evening after it didn't arrive in Canon. The flight originated in French Lick, Ind.

Officials with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office told media the wreckage was found in the Cherokee National Forest in an area that is not easily accessible by vehicle. Crews were able to access the area by air.

An investigation into the crash continues.
