ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Four people are believed to have been aboard a plane that crashed in Alaska with no survivors.

National Transportation Safety Board Alaska Chief Clint Johnson says reports indicate four people were aboard the plane when Piper PA-22 crashed Sunday outside Girdwood. Johnson says NTSB investigators were heading to the crash site with Alaska State Troopers on Monday.

Alaska State Troopers in a web posting say the crash happened near Eagle Glacier south of Anchorage. The crash was at about the 5,000-foot (1,524-meter) elevation on Goat Mountain.

Johnson says the plane crashed under unknown circumstances sometime after takeoff from Girdwood.

Troopers say an Alaska National Guard helicopter responded, and the crew confirmed the crash and that there were no survivors.
