OCEAN CITY, Md. — Maryland State Police say the body of a plane crash victim has been recovered.
News outlets report the body was recovered from an airplane crash in water near the north end of Assateague State Park, located on a barrier island bordered by the Atlantic Ocean.
State police said in a Thursday news release that the body was a man wearing the same clothing as described on the pilot. The body will be transported to the medical examiner’s office in Baltimore for an autopsy.
Coast Guard officials say they believe two people were aboard the plane and identified them as Banica Richard Robinson and Marcson Ngwa.
Authorities say the aircraft had left Martin State Airport en route to Ocean City on Wednesday but didn’t return as expected to the originating airport.
