A Horizon Q400
Alaska Airlines had earlier tweeted that there was an "unauthorized take-off" of a Horizon Air Q400. Police also said the incident was not related to terrorism.
The Pierce County Sheriff's Office said on Twitter that preliminary information suggested that a mechanic had stolen the aircraft.
Air Alaska passengers wait in the terminal following an incident where an airline employee took off in an airplane, at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Seattle, Washington, U.S., August 10, 2018.
"An airline employee conducted an unauthorized takeoff without passengers at Sea-Tac; aircraft has crashed in south Puget Sound".
In a video statement, Constance von Muehlen, Horizon Air's chief operating officer, said that the plane departed around 8 p.m. and that no other passengers or crew were aboard.
The plane, a 76-seater Q400 turboprop aircraft, belonged to Alaska Airlines.
Two F-15 fighter jets supposedly from the 142nd Fighter Wing, Portland Air National Guard Base, Portland were "not involved in (the) crash", the Pierce County Sheriff's Office tweeted Friday.
After taking off from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the hijacked plane crashed on Ketron Island.
