The small plane carrying three people that went missing Sunday has been located in a deep, water-filled quarry on Grey Cloud Island in Washington County.
Crews believed the plane crashed into the quarry, located south of St. Paul Park near the Mississippi River, Sunday evening. They searched the quarry with boats and lights that night, but didn't locate the plane. They did find plane debris, so they believed they were searching in the correct area.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office dive teams searched the 200-foot deep quarry on Monday, and Sheriff Dan Starry told reporters that they had located the plane using underwater sonar, and now will work on recovering the plane.
Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration will lead the investigation.
