DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Authorities in Duluth are searching for a plane that may have crashed into Lake Superior.
Duluth Fire Department officials tell WDIO-TV (http://bit.ly/1lesu4n ) that they have a boat out searching a possible debris field, but visibility is poor due to the fog.
Fire officials say the initial report came from the Duluth International Airport tower at 11:30 a.m. Saturday. The tower lost contact with a single-engine plane with at least one occupant near Brighton Beach. And a witness told fire officials they had heard an impact near the beach.
The Coast Guard, State Patrol, Duluth Fire Department, Duluth Police Department and St. Louis County Rescue Squad are on the scene.
