MARANA - Deputies from the Pima County Sheriff's Office are at the scene of a single-engine airplane crash that happened late last night.
We're told one person, likely the pilot, has died.
It all began some time shortly after 9 pm, when Border Patrol agents were asked by the FAA to search for a privately owned airplane it had lost communication with.
Border Patrol found the plane crashed in a remote area on the far north-west side off of West Avra Valley Road.
This morning additional crews responded to the area to investigate.
News Four Tucson has a crew there, and we will keep you posted.
