Officials said the plane was reported missing after the FAA lost communication with the aircraft.

LOVELAND, Colo. — A small single-engine plane that was reported missing Sunday morning in the Masonville area has been located safely, according to officials. 

Officials with the Larimer County Sheriff's Office, Loveland Fire Rescue Authority, Larimer County Search and Rescue, Civil Air Patrol and Poudre Fire Authority searched for a reported plane crash in the Masonville area Sunday morning after the FAA lost communication with the aircraft.

Poudre Fire Authority tweeted:" Thankfully the plane has been located safe and sound. It was a communication issue and the craft has landed at a nearby airport."
