Ohio sheriff: Search turns up no sign of ultralight crash

URBANA, Ohio (AP) — A sheriff in western Ohio says crews who searched through cornfields after getting a report of an ultralight crash found no evidence of a wreck.

Champaign County Sheriff Matthew Melvin said Sunday that it appears there never was a crash. He says search crews looked over the area Saturday on the ground and by air.

He says no wreckage was found and that there are no missing person reports from any of the airports nearby.

The sheriff says a witness who lives nearby had called authorities to report that he thought he saw an ultralight go down north of Urbana.

Melvin says the only thing they found in the fields were a few birthday balloons.
