Rescue crews have identified the pilot of the plane that crashed in New Hampshire on Thursday.

The first report of a crash came in from a resident of Upper Snow Road around 11:26 a.m., Winchester Fire Chief Gary Kellom said Thursday evening. No other people appeared to be in the plane at the time.

One witness described the plane as gray or silver, saying it was doing stunts for a half-hour and then got lost in the clouds. The Winchester fire and police departments responded, but didn't find the plane.

The state Homeland Security and Emergency Management agency said attempts to search for it by aircraft were hindered by inclement weather and air rescue efforts were called off. Drones continued search efforts.

State Police say search crews found the plan 5 hours later.

"Shortly thereafter they found it", he said.

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are now investigating.
