Bahamas: Search continues for missing pilot and plane


The Royal Bahamas Police Force says the search continues for a 66-year-old American male, whose aircraft, a P32R Saratoga, Reg # N-9253M, reportedly crashed in waters east of the Exuma Cays on Friday.

In a media statement it says preliminary reports indicate that shortly before 9 am, the pilot departed from Palm Beach Airport and was en route to Stella Maris, Long Island, situated in The Bahamas when he reportedly encountered bad weather and subsequently lost contact with Air Traffic Control.

Officers from the Royal Bahamas Police Force Marine Unit, The Royal Bahamas Defence Force Marine Unit, along with US Coast Guard and private residents conducted search and rescue efforts in the area and discovered an oil slick where the plane reportedly crashed.

However, neither the plane nor the pilot were located. The search for the plane and pilot continues.  (LOOP)
