A four-man U.S. military plane crashed in northern Norway, the country’s Joint Rescue Coordination Center (JRCC) told Reuters on Friday.

The V-22 Osprey was taking part in a NATO military exercise called Cold Response when it was reported that the 1826 CET (1726 GMT) had disappeared, the JRCC said.

The plane was in a training exercise and was scheduled to land at 1800 CET (1700 GMT). The weather was bad in the area, and the situation worsened.

“We made a discovery from the air,” a JRCC spokesman told Reuters. “We found it after receiving the emergency signal.”

The fate of the people on the plane was unknown, he added.
