Fulton County Sheriff Thomas Lorey says the search for the pilot will resume this morning.

Lorey says the flight’s two passengers were found dead Friday evening near where the twin-engine plane crashed in a wooded area in Ephratah, about an hour west of Albany. He says the bulk of the plane is submerged in a pond and divers were expected to go in at daylight.

The flight originated in Bedford, Mass., and was headed to Rome, N.Y.

Officials did not immediately identify the passengers or pilot.

Angel Flight is a nonprofit group that arranges free air transportation for sick patients from volunteer pilots. President and founder Larry Camerlin, said the organization was “tremendously saddened” by the tragic news of the crash.
