GUTHRIE CENTER, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a small plane crashed in central Iowa, killing all four people on board, including a teenage girl.

They believe the pilot may have suffered a heart attack, and a student pilot attempted to make an emergency landing.

Guthrie County Sheriff's Deputy Jesse Swensen says the plane was reported missing shortly after it took off Friday evening from the Le Mars Municipal Airport in northwestern Iowa. He says the wreckage was found at around 6:30 a.m. Saturday in a cattle pasture southwest of Guthrie Center, which is about 115 miles (185 kilometers) southwest of Le Mars.

The Sheriff's Office is identifying the pilot as Edward Anderson, 49, of Le Mars. Tyler Douvia, 28, of Merill was also on board, as well as 36-year-old Patrick Kellen and 15-year-old Samantha Clark, both of Le Mars.

The crash scene will be secured while the Federal Aviation Administration investigates.
