The wreckage of a plane from North Carolina was discovered Friday night in south central Colorado, a day after it disappeared from radar in mountainous terrain.

There were no survivors, reports The Pueblo Chieftain in Colorado.
It isn t immediately clear exactly where in North Carolina the plane was from or who was on board.

The plane landed in Pueblo, Colo., on Thursday and then took off on a southern, then westerly track, authorities said. A distress beacon was later picked up by satellite, and authorities sent a search team into the mountains.

Rescuers found the wreckage Friday night. The Pueblo Chieftain reports the crash happened at an altitude of 12,400 feet.

It s unclear what caused the plane to crash.
