Federal investigators will examine the cause from a Monday plane crash in East Texas that left no apparent survivors.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) says nobody on board apparently survived a twin-engine Cessna 421 flying from Houston to Tulsa on Monday night.

The FAA says the plane lost contact with air traffic controllers around 9:30pm and believe the pilot was trying to avoid bad weather in the area.

Wreckage of the doomed flight was found 140 miles northeast of Houston near the town of Wells.

The FAA says they aren’t sure how many people were on the flight and the wreckage was badly burned. Documents on the owner of the plane were not available.

The Cesnna 421 is capable of holding six passengers and two crew members.
