BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - State police and Monroe County authorities are trying to figure out how a plane left Monroe County airport and wound up in the Bahamas.
They say someone took the Cessna 400 Corvalis sometime between 9:30pm Saturday night and 6:30am Sunday morning.
Managers at the Monroe County Airport detected the plane’s emergency alert signal off the coast of the Bahamas just after 1:30pm Sunday afternoon. They say the aircraft is missing and apparently left without proper clearance.
Investigators say the plane had previously been stored in a hanger at the Monroe County Airport. Deputies called the Indiana State Police Evidence Technician to help with the investigation.
