Search suspended for plane that crashed in Lake Erie

Officials announced on Tuesday that they have concluded their search and recovery efforts for the plane that disappeared over Lake Erie last month with six people on board.

Numerous pieces of debris were recovered during the search for Cessna Citation 525, which went down on December 29 shortly after takeoff from a Cleveland airport, a spokesman for Mayor Frank Jackson said in a statement.

"The Medical Examiner's office has determined three of the six profiles through DNA testing", said Commissioner Bahhur. Also on the plane were their neighbors, Brian and Megan Casey.

The twin-engine jet was headed to Ohio State University Airport in Columbus following a Cleveland Cavaliers basketball game when it lost contact and crashed, officials have said.

The city held a news conference at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday and announced that today was the last day for recovery operations in Lake Erie for the plane that went missing over Lake Erie on December 29.

The debris has been turned over to the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board to make a determination as to what caused the crash.

Cleveland police's accident investigation unit is tasked with completing a crash report and documenting the more than 270 pieces of debris that were recovered.

Crews have recovered the plane's cockpit voice recorder, an engine, wings and large portions of its fuselage.

The city has not yet tallied the costs associated with the search efforts, Bahhur said.
