Plane search resumes Monday in Lake Superior crash

Posted: Updated:
DULUTH, Minn. (KMSP) - The body of a pilot has been recovered after his plane crashed in Lake Superior near Duluth, Minn. on Saturday around 11:30 a.m.

The U.S. Coast Guard searched for the pilot in about 140-foot-deep water and located the body Saturday night. The Coast Guard station in Duluth said its 45-foot response boat searched the debris field Saturday evening.

According to WDIO-TV, searchers have recovered the plane's logbook, but heavy fog is hindering the plane search efforts.

Duluth Fire Department officials said the Duluth International Airport tower first reported the crash around 11:30 a.m. after losing contact with a single-engine while and maroon plane. Officials believe the pilot was the only person aboard the plane.

Recovery efforts will continue Monday as specially trained divers are needed to work in the deep water off Duluth's Brighton Beach.
