Aitkin County Undersheriff Bruce Beck said the sheriff's department Friday was still investigating reports of a possible plane crash Thursday night on the east side of Mille Lacs Lake near Isle.
However, Beck said no planes have been reported missing and searches conducted in the area Thursday night, which included crews from the sheriff's department, DNR and the State Patrol, didn't find any downed aircraft and no emergency locator transmitters were detected.
Beck said another flyover with a State Patrol aircraft was to take place Friday to make sure they didn't miss anything.
Beck said a report came in about 7:30 p.m. Thursday from a resident who had heard sounds like engine trouble from an aircraft.
