This happened near the intersection of county roads 600 South and 500 West.

The plane took off from Eagle Creek Airpark in IN just before 7:30 p.m CST (8:20 p.m. EST).

The owner of a Pagel's Ponderosa Dairy Farm in Kewaunee was on board a plane that crashed in Indiana Thursday night, according to a source close to the family.

A Cessna 441 plane crashed near the town of Rossville, Indiana, Thursday killing everyone on board. Such a plane can hold up to 10 people.

RTV6 reports authorities say there were no survivors in the crash.

First responders had trouble finding the wreckage at first because it was so dark and far back in a field. They used ATVs and other off-road vehicles to find it.

Green Bay CBS affiliate WFRV reported a prominent Wisconsin dairy farmer among the dead. Witcpalek is Pagel's son-in-law. A statement from the family to WFRV said the pilot was Nathan Saari. We appreciate the outpouring of the communities thoughts and prayers and request your respect for the privacy of the family as we wait for additional information. "But it concerns me when we affect family businesses that have been in the family for many years".

No word on what caused the plane to go down.
