(LEX 18) — A man is dead after a helicopter crash in western Kentucky.

Search crews found the helicopter, along with the body of pilot David Stone, Monday afternoon in a wooded area near Mammoth Cave National Park.


The helicopter was last seen traveling toward Glasgow by a group of hunters in Ohio County.

Officials say Stone left an airport near St. Louis on Saturday and was planning to refuel in Glasgow before heading to Knoxville, Tennessee.
