Crews are searching for a plane with the tail number N325JK, but have not found anything yet. Online records show that the plane took off shortly before 2:20 p.m. Wednesday from Wiley Port Airport and was expected to arrive at 6:12 p.m. at Georgetown Municipal Airport near Austin, Texas.

The plane veered from its flight path near Waco, Texas.

Records show that the plane -- a single-engine fixed wing aircraft -- is registered to the Edmond-based company Abide Aviation LLC.

Officials with the Federal Aviation Administration said that the pilot of a Cirrus S22T plane filed a flight plan to Georgetown, Texas. The plane did not land and continued on the same course and was unresponsive to air traffic control instructions.

The plane was last observed on radar about 219 miles northwest of Cancun at 15,000 feet and was headed into the Gulf of Mexico.

Multiple sources have told KOCO 5 that the pilot, identified by social media posts as

Bill Kinsinger, was heading to Texas as part of an animal-rescue charity.

KOCO 5 will provide more information when it has been confirmed.
