Original story

Wreckage from a plane crash has reportedly been found Sunday evening near the Eveleth-Virginia Municipal Airport in northern Minnesota.

According to KBJR, a Piper PA-32 departed from the Tower Municipal Airport between 12-1 p.m. and was bound for a location in Wisconsin when it crashed sometime after 3 p.m. 

The wreckage was discovered near the intersection of Bodas and Clyde roads in Fayal Township, which is close to the Eveleth-Virginia Municipal Airport, just a few miles southeast of Eveleth. 

Per the Duluth News Tribune, St. Louis County Undersheriff Dave Phillips said there was "extensive damage to the plane made it difficult to determine the number of passengers or their identities," though no deaths have been confirmed by authorities. 

This is a developing story.
