Federal and local authorities are continuing to investigate the crash of a small plane that went down in the foothills of the north Georgia mountains, killing one person on board.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says the single-engine Piper Malibu crashed Monday night in Dawsonville.

A portion of the plane has been recovered. The crash site, about 55 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta, is less than a half-mile from Georgia 400.

Bergen says the plane had departed from the Morristown Municipal Airport in New Jersey. It was flying to the DeKalb-Peachtree Airport when air traffic controllers lost contact with the pilot.

Bergen says the plane was registered to a Georgia entity.
