Plane Missing Over Lake Erie

Posted by on Saturday, December 31, 2016

The U.S. Coast Guard has called off a search for a plane that went missing over Lake Erie carrying six people.

Severe water conditions caused a delay in the recovery operation.

The plane went missing on Thursday night after taking off at the Cleveland lake-shore airport.

Cleveland will now take over the search. They plan on beginning the search at the last point of contact with the aircraft.

The last ping indicated a rapid altitude loss. Authorities have said there were no distress signals from the pilot.
