The Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office says a small airplane crashed north of Billings, and Sheriff Mike Linder said there were "no signs of life" in the wreckage.

The Cessna 182 crashed at about 6 p.m. Saturday.

The wreckage was found Sunday morning between Billings and Roundup.

Linder told the Billings Gazette it appears the airplane hit a wire on an antenna tower and tumbled down the side of a mountain.

He said his office was still trying to determine how many people were on board, though the FAA says there were four occupants.

A Cessna 182 typically has four seats.
