EPHRATAH, N.Y. (AP) -- The search for the pilot of a volunteer medical flight has res/WVLTumed days after the plane crashed into the woods in central New York, killing at least two people.
The Fulton County Sheriff's Department and other authorities went back to the crash site Sunday morning. The Angel Flight plane went down Friday evening in Ephratah (ee-FRAY'-tah). It's about an hour west of Albany.
Plans call for divers to use sonar to search a big, murky pond where the bulk of the twin-engine plane was submerged. Rescue workers also are set to canvass the woods.
Fulton County Sheriff Thomas Lorey says the flight's two passengers were found dead Friday near the crash site.
Angel Flight is a nonprofit group that arranges free air transportation for sick patients from volunteer pilots.
