A private plane made an emergency landing at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport Saturday afternoon and, according to the Daily News, Jennifer Lawrence was on board.

The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority confirms a Beech Craft Jet 400 diverted to BNIA at 1:15 p.m. after possible left engine failure, but could not confirm the Oscar winning actress was on board.

The NFTA says four people on the airplane, two of whom were crew members, and everyone on board landed safely.

The plane made a routine emergency landing on BNIA's runway and then taxied to Prior Aviation, according to the NFTA. Because the plane's destination was not at the Buffalo Airport, the NFTA does not have a record of who was on board and, therefore, could not confirm if the Hunger Games actress was on the plane.

The aircraft was heading to the Teterboro, New Jersey Airport from Louisville, Kentucky, according to the NFTA.
