(CNN) -- A pilot is missing after two single-engine planes collided over western Alaska, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

A Cessna 207 and a Cessna 208 collided in midair Friday over an area southeast of Bethel, said FAA spokesman Ian Gregor.

The Cessna 208 crashed and burned.

"We do not know the fate of the pilot, who was the only person onboard," he said.

The Cessna 207 landed and its pilot was seen walking around the plane after the landing, according to the spokesman.

CNN's Greg Morrison contributed to this report.
