(Reuters) -- A small plane carrying four passengers and one crew member crashed en route from Juneau to Hoonah, Alaska, and a search-and-rescue mission was underway, carrier Wings of Alaska said on Friday. The Juneau Police Department said it received a 911 call from a person reporting to be involved in a plane crash.
The caller's name matched one of the five people listed as being onboard the missing Cessna 207, a single-engine aircraft, the police said in a statement.
The condition of the passengers and crew member was not immediately known.
Juneau police said several rescue teams were en route, including the U.S. Coast Guard, the Alaska State Troopers and the Capital City Fire Rescue out of Juneau.
The Coast Guard dispatched a helicopter from Sitka, Juneau police said.
The National Weather Service reported light rain and fog in the area.
Wings has its headquarters in Juneau and operates flights to coastal communities in southeast Alaska.
Near the end of June, a sightseeing plane crashed during a tour of the Misty Fjords area of southeast Alaska, killing all nine on board.
