KIMBALL TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a Canadian man was attempting an instrument landing in the fog when his small plane crashed near a southeastern Michigan airport.

St. Clair County sheriff’s Deputy Steve Campau says the plane crashed about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in woods in Kimball Township near St. Clair County International Airport. It’s about 55 miles northeast of Detroit.

Campau says the Twin Piper Seneca made an approach about 1:30 p.m. He says the plane missed the landing attempt and wasn’t heard from again.

The deputy says the pilot was a Watford, Ontario, resident and kept a plane at the airport. His name wasn’t immediately released.

Campau says multiple emergency agencies responded, and they located the wreckage about 5:30 p.m.

The deputy says the Federal Aviation Administration will begin investigating Christmas morning.
