An Indiana pilot has gone missing on a mission trip to Africa. 

Jerry Krause was flying from South Africa to Mali on a mission trip April 7th when he lost communication. The Warsaw, Indiana native is assumed to be missing somewhere off the west coast of Africa.

"We just don't know. That area blocks out all Internet, blocks out all cell phones. They are a very isolated country. They don't let anybody else in," said Beth White, a former colleague. 

A small island airport reportedly lost contact with him during a power outage, and when the power came by on, they heard nothing more from him.

His wife started a Facebook page in hopes of getting the military to search for him. Click here to go to that page.
