DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard says it's searching for any possible survivors of a plane crash in Lake Superior off Duluth.
The Coast Guard station in Duluth says its 45-foot response boat was searching the debris field Saturday afternoon.
WDIO-TV (http://bit.ly/1lesu4n ) reports that searchers have found the plane's logbook, but poor visibility due to heavy fog has hampered the search.
Duluth Fire Department officials say the initial report came from the Duluth International Airport tower at 11:30 a.m. The tower lost contact with a single-engine white-and-maroon plane with at least one occupant. A witness told fire officials they had heard an impact near Brighton Beach.
The Coast Guard, State Patrol, Duluth Fire Department, Duluth Police Department and St. Louis County Rescue Squad are on the scene.
