Plane crash claim unsubstantiated

AUSTINTOWN — A tip that a small plane had crashed near Meander Reservoir apparently was unfounded, as no plane was discovered after several jurisdictions searched the area Tuesday morning.

Austintown and Weathersfield townships both checked the area and could not find any sign of a plane, according to Austintown dispatch. The Ohio State Highway Patrol was made aware of the situation, but said around 10:30 a.m. that crews were no longer searching.
