The plane took off at 10:57 pm and headed straight out over Lake Erie. Shortly after takeoff, air traffic control lost contact with the plane. It disappeared off the radar two miles off the shores of the lake. The small plane was headed to the airport at Ohio State University in downtown Columbus, however, none of the passengers were affiliated with the university.

Due to weather conditions on the lake, there was no way for a boat search to go out. However, the US Coast Guard was able to search for any sign of the plane or survivors via a helicopter search. The Canadian aircrew aided in the search, as well as a ship headed from Detroit.

However, sadly, there has been no sign of debris from the plane, nor any sign of the passengers aboard. The names of the passengers have not been released pending notification of the passenger’s family.
