The United States Coast Guard located a small plane Monday that crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off of the South Florida coast with divers later finding the body of a man inside.

Petty Officer Jose Hernandez told news outlets that the agency received a call around 8 p.m. Sunday regarding the Piper PA-28 Cherokee plane going down about a mile off Boynton Beach Inlet.

“The person who called in the report said the plane was sinking,” Hernandez said.

Shortly before 9 a.m. Monday, Coast Guard officials said they had recovered the plane. One person was on board, and officials said Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office divers found the 24-year-old man’s body inside the plane.

The plane was flying from Palm Beach County Park Airport to Merritt Island Airport, about 140 miles north, officials said.

A Coast Guard helicopter, cutter and small boat were searching the water for any survivors.

No additional updates were available early Monday.
