The survivor of a small plane crash is missing somewhere around the Santa Cruz Mountains and a three-county search is underway.

Helicopters searched southern San Mateo County Saturday near Skyline Boulevard. Officials say the pilot lost consciousness somewhere over Stanford just before 1 p.m.

They say a passenger radioed for help and that someone also called 9-1-1 after the crash.

It is unknown whether the plane crashed in Santa Cruz, San Mateo or Santa Clara counties, so they are searching all three.
