Four people have been confirmed dead after a small plane crashed near Payson, AZ.

The Gila County Sheriff's Office received a call about 9:48 p.m. Monday from the Scottsdale Police Department saying a plane flying from Scottsdale to Telluride was reported overdue and never made it to Colorado, according to Sarah White, chief administrative officer for the sheriff's office.

Crews went to the area where the plane was last known, an area north of Payson, and a crash site was located. Deputies were still searching for the fourth reported occupant of the plane. Their names and city of residence weren't released, but officials at Cicero Preparatory Academy in Scottsdale said in a statement that the two girls were students there.

The police report says a man told police his 31-year-old daughter, 44-year-old son-in-law and two girls, 12 and 14, didn't check in after planning to fly to Telluride.

A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration said the agency was investigating the crash along with the National Transportation Safety Board.
