BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - U.S. Coast Guard officials plan are continuing to search for two people aboard a small plane that went missing in the St. Simons Island area near Georgia's coastline.
The twin-engine plane disappeared from radar Monday evening. Residents in the area heard "crash-like noises" near Grant Creek on Mackay River, east of Golden Isles Aviation in St. Simons Island.
The Brunswick News reports that the search was continuing Tuesday morning.
The FAA said the plane had departed from Concord, N.C., and was destined for Jacksonville Executive Airport at Craig Field in Florida.
The Coast Guard, sheriff's officials and Georgia Department of Natural Resources crews reported "multiple debris fields consistent with a small plane crash" but had not yet located the passengers.
