The Coast Guard said it would continue to search Monday for a man who remains missing after a two-seat airplane crashed Sunday evening near Eagle Harbor.

Coast Guard officials said Monday morning that the search continued overnight from Sunday.

The Coast Guard Cutter Adelie will be added to the search effort, and the vessel is expected to arrive to the scene shortly, according to the Coast Guard.

The plane crash was reported just before 5:30 p.m. Sunday, May 27.

The Coast Guard said the aircraft was a 1974 4-cycle two-seater, fixed-wing single-engine airplane that had two people aboard.

A good Samaritan had rescued nearby one of the two people aboard the aircraft, a woman, who was later taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

The search continues for the other occupant of the plane, a male.
