Lauderdale County Emergency Management received a report of a plane possibly crashing Thursday night. But a search has not turned up anything.

There may or may not have been a plane crash in Lauderdale County Thursday night. It's looking increasingly like there was not.

Emergency officials got a call around 10:30 p.m. from someone who believed they saw a plane go down near the Newton- Lauderdale county line.

They spent much of the night searching for the plane, and went back out Friday morning, but did not find anything.

"Just from what he described, and the fact that we had a meteor shower last night during that time frame, I suspect we may be dealing with a meteorite that fell," said Sharp. "I don't know that, but there's no planes missing, anywhere around here. Nobody's reported anyone missing, so I have to believe that's probably what we're dealing with."

A plane from the Mississippi Civil Air Patrol was also called in to check the area, but was not able to come up with anything.
