Our hearts go out to the family of James Horner.
An attorney for the Academy Award-winning composer says that Horner is missing after a small plane registered in his name crashed in Southern California, killing the pilot.
According to reports, the single-engine plane crashed at around 9:30 a.m. Monday in the Los Padres National Forest, which is about 60 miles north of Santa Barbara.
"We haven't heard from James," lawyer Jay Cooper told KNBC-LA. "We don't know where he was headed...He flies a lot and is an experienced pilot."
Horner, 61, won two Oscars in 1998, Best Original Dramatic Score for Titanic and Best Original Song (with Will Jennings) for writing the film's instant-classic theme, "My Heart Will Go On."
