No survivors in small plane crash near Big Creek Greenway in Alpharetta, police say

Alpharetta police have officially reported finding no survivors after a plane crash along the Big Creek Greenway in Alpharetta on Monday afternoon.

The day of the crash, officers said they recovered one body, but were still looking for a second passenger.

Sgt. David Freeman, with the Alpharetta Police Department said the exact number aboard the plane was not immediately known, but the filed flight plan indicated two people were supposed to be on board. Sgt. Freeman said they will not be identifying the victims at this time. But in the future, the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office will release that information.

"We received a 911 call of a plane crash," said Sgt. Freeman.

That call came in around 12:57 p.m. reporting a small plane had crashed just north of Kimball Bridge Road.

"The public was completely safe. There was nobody, no residences in jeopardy at that time, when the plane went down," said Alpharetta Police Sgt. David Freeman. "So, it's in a secluded area of the Greenway."

SKYFOX 5 flew over the area and saw trees snapped and a debris field in the woods.

The FAA says the plane was on approach to DeKalb-Peachtree Airport and that two people were on board.

The NTSB says plane was Beechcraft Baron, a twin-propeller plane. Online flight trackers show the plane was likely coming from south Georgia.
