GREENSBURG, IN (FOX19) -

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) was called to investigate a plane crash just south of the Greensburg, Ind. airport that left four people dead.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reported losing the plane from radar early Sunday evening after it had been cleared to approach the airport.

Around that same time, a witness in the area reported a plane going overhead at a low altitude.

After a couple hours of searching, the plane was found crashed just off of County Road 200 West with no survivors.

The identification of the four victims has not been released, pending notification by the Decatur County Coroner.

The plane, a four-seat 1993 Piper 46, is registered to Donald Horan of Greensburg. 

Greensburg Police Department Detective, Bill Meyerrose, revealed, "Yes, if it is in fact who we believe it to be... He is a community businessman and his family, along with another couple."

A flight tracking report indicated the plane was headed from Fort Walton Beach, Florida to Greensburg, with its last position report at 6:15 p.m.

The FAA and NTSB are continuing to investigate the crash.
