French plane with 6 aboard missing near Corsica

French officials say a small plane with six people aboard has gone missing near the French Mediterranean island of Corsica.

Firefighters and police say the Cessna’s pilot radioed air traffic controllers to say the plane’s motor had malfunctioned and that he planned to try an emergency landing at sea. Shortly afterward the plane disappeared from radar screens.

Rescue services, including helicopters, a plane and a Navy boat, were trying to find the plane. The craft took off Monday from Propriano on Corsica and had planned to head to Cannes on the French mainland
