ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Searchers have rescued a pilot on a lake west of Cook Inlet.

The pilot was found Thursday and transported to a Soldotna hospital.

Clint Johnson with the National Transportation Safety Board tells KTUU (https://is.gd/7PgYPA) it was his understanding that the unidentified pilot didn’t have any injuries.

Johnson says the Cessna 180 was found at the crash site on Chakachamna Lake. The plane had partially broken through the ice.

Rescuers began searching after the plane was reported overdue when it didn’t return as planned to Soldotna on Wednesday. The lake was the plane’s destination.

The investigation will include when and why the plane went down.
