The FAA says a small airplane that originated in Concord crashed near Brunswick, GA on Monday evening.

According to the FAA, a Piper PA-44 aircraft crashed four miles east of Brunswick Golden Isle Airport at 7:10 pm.

The flight departed from Concord, N.C. and was heading to Jacksonville Exec. Airport/Craig Field. It's tail number is N923RS.

The two people on board have not been found. Some small debris from the plane has been recovered, according to Major Stephen Adams with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

Searchers are using planes and side scan sonar in the search.

Concord city officials say the plane was an ATP Flight school plane. Tuesday morning a spokesperson for the city of Concord said the city's aviation director spoke with ATP and confirmed the aircraft and crew are not based out of Concord.

Two people were on board, according to the report. Their names and conditions have not been released.

The FAA is investigating the crash.

They're not releasing the names of the people who were in the plane.

Local flight instructor, Mark Wages of North Star Aero Flight School at Concord Regional, said, "All of us are really close in the community, even if you don’t know each other, and it makes it really hard when you hear about something like this." 

Wages does not work for the flight training school associated with the accident. He says training with students using emergency situations is important, but he realizes even with the best preparation, tragedies happen. Wages said, "It can happen to any of us at anytime, and that’s the kind of scary part."
