(DAWN, Mo) A pilot is uninjured after his plane crashed in a field in Livingston county.

The F.A.A. alerted emergency crews of a possible downed aircraft around 3:53 p.m. Thursday.

Several agencies including the Livingston County Sheriffs Office, Missouri State Highway Patrol, and a few citizens began searching for the plane several miles southwest of Chillicothe.

For some time, responders were unsuccessful in locating the plane, but the pilot was able to walk to a nearby home and give his address over the phone.

The pilot, who is from Wisconsin, was then found around 5:02 p.m. a few miles southeast of Dawn.

The Highway Patrol and F.A.A are investigating.

A sunny and very warm Wednesday across northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. Sunny skies and above normal temperatures were found across the area Wednesday afternoon but a strong cold front has made its way into the area bringing cooler air with it.
