(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 strong cold front has pushed through northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. For tonight, we'll see clear skies as overnight lows drop down to the middle 50s. We could wake up to some foggy conditions on Monday morning, but it will be a sunny & nice day for the first day of fall.
