Small Plane Crashes Off Grand Bahama; 4 Missing

MIAMI (AP) — Authorities in the Bahamas and the U.S. Coast Guard are searching for four people following the crash of a small plane in the Atlantic Ocean near the island of Grand Bahama.

The Cessna aircraft had taken off Monday from Ormond Beach Municipal Airport in Florida and was heading to Freeport, Bahamas when it crashed. Coast Guard Lt. Cmdr. Gabe Somma says authorities have located debris in the water and are searching for any sign of the four people who were aboard the aircraft.

A Coast Guard helicopter is assisting the Royal Bahamas Defense Force and local volunteers in the search. Grand Bahama is about 70 miles off the coast of Florida.
