The search started around 8 p.m. Monday behind the Brandywine Hospital after a report of a dark-colored paraglider that possibly went down.
Eyewitness News found a large group of first responders using ATV’s and rescue lights to search a dark wooded area in Caln Township, near Coatesville.
The Chester County mobile communications unit was also on scene.
But even with all the tools and manpower, rescuers say searching the area at night was very difficult.
No further information has been released on what exactly led up to the 911 call.
