St. Simons Island, Ga.
It's still considered a search and rescue operation for a plane that crashed in Brunswick, Georgia Monday evening.
According to the FAA, a Piper PA-44 aircraft crashed four miles east of Brunswick Golden Isle Airport, at 7:10 pm. The flight departed from Concord, N.C. and was heading to Jacksonville Exec. Airport/Craig Field.
The Coast Guard was called in to assist the Georgia Department of Natural Resources in a search for survivors of a reported plane crash near Grant Creek on Mackay River, east of Golden Isles Aviation in St. Simons Island.
Two people were on board. Their names and conditions have not been released.
Marty Moore tells our partner CBS 47/Fox 30 Action News that he heard the crash from inside his home.
"I was inside my house with my wife and we ended up hearing an explosion and I jumped up and I said did that sound like a plane," Moore said.
A helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Savannah, Ga., and a boatcrew from Coast Guard Station Brunswick, Ga., searched the area Monday night. They reported multiple debris fields consistent with a small plane crash but had to stop due to windy conditions.
Crews with the Coast Guard resumed the search after 8am Tuesday.
The FAA is investigating. The NTSB will determine probable cause.
