Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- One man, with ties to the Fargo-Moorhead area, is dead, after crashing his plane, about 5 miles South of Hawley.

He was heading to the Moorhead Airport, from the Duluth area.

There was spotty fog in the area, at the time.

At 60th ave south, south of Hawley, down this dirt road is where police have located the crash site.

The clay county sheriff’s dept. has confirmed one dead.

But they are not able to release their name at this time.

If this is the same pilot they’ve been searching for, that man was scheduled to arrive at the Moorhead airport around 10:30 this morning.

After he didn’t show he was reported missing.

Family members were last in contact with him when he was flying over park rapids.

That’s when the pilot said it was very foggy.

This crash site will continue to be investigated before the craft will be hauled away.
