At about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, Massachusetts State Police reported a plane that had left Pittsfield but never arrived in Middlebury.

Baker, the only person on board, was instrument rated, Manley said, and although the single-engine plane was built in 1966, police had no information that it hadn't been running well.

Late Wednesday night, the Pittsford Police Department and the Vermont State Police received information about an overdue aircraft that was supposed be flying to Middlebury from MA.

Thursday morning a Vermont Army National Guard helicopter and several planes from the Vermont Civil Air Patrol joined the effort, but saw no sign of the crash.

The location of the wreckage was reported by a Pittsford resident who had heard about the incident and chose to look around his property to see if he could find anything, Pratico said.

The plane had come to a stop near U.S. Route 7 in the town of Pittsford near Whistlestop Lane, police said.
