November 27, 2018

Searchers located a downed aircraft Monday night in the La Cienega area south of the Santa Fe Regional Airport, a Santa Fe Police Department spokesman said.

No details were immediately available concerning possible injuries, the number of people onboard, the type of aircraft or what might have caused it to go down in the hilly area southwest of the Santa Fe.

Lt. Matt Champlin, who confirmed just before 9 p.m. that a crash scene had been located, said city police had led the search and assisted in setting up a perimeter.

Champlin said he expected the National Transportation Safety Board to take over the investigation into the incident.
