BRANSON WEST, Mo. (AP) -

Authorities say two people from Gardner, KS have died in a small plane crash in southwest Missouri.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Elizabeth Isham Cory said in an email that the single-engine Piper Cherokee went down Sunday night in a pasture about 1 mile northwest of the Branson West Municipal Airport in Missouri.

Stone County Sheriff Doug Rader says the two people aboard the plane were killed. Rader says the man and woman were meeting family in the Branson area. Their names weren't immediately released.

Cory described the circumstances of the crash as "unknown." She says the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.
