MILWAUKEE (AP) - Two people are dead after a single engine plane went down in Lake Michigan near a Milwaukee suburb.
Milwaukee Fire Department Assistant Chief Michael Romas says rescuers found two bodies in the plane underwater. He says they don't know if anyone else was aboard but were still searching the water Saturday evening just in case.
Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Investigator Lesley Kenney says her office was notified at about 5:30 p.m.
Petty Officer Chris Yaw of the U.S. Coast Guard says they were notified at around 4 p.m. Saturday after air traffic controllers at Milwaukee's Mitchell International Airport lost radar and radio contact with the plane about a mile offshore near Cudahy.
In an email, Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Elizabeth Cory says the plane departed from Racine late Saturday afternoon.21209438
