ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- Authorities say rescuers did not find any survivors after a small plane carrying three people crashed in a remote area of western Alaska.

Alaska State Troopers say its helicopter crew located wreckage of the plane near the coastal village of Togiak, about 200 miles northwest of Anchorage.

The troopers said in a statement that no survivors were found at the crash site, which was in rough terrain about 12 miles northwest of Togiak.

National Transportation Safety Board spokesman Clint Johnson tells KTVA that two pilots and a passenger were aboard.

He says that the Cessna 208 operated by Ravn Connect was en route to Togiak from Quinhagak, about 70 miles away.

The company reported the plane missing Sunday afternoon.

The station says another Ravn Connect flight utilizing a Hageland Aviation Services plane crashed in midair with another plane on Aug. 31, killing five people.
