The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) said in a news release that USCG boat and air crews are assisting the Georgia Department of Natural Resources in a search for survivors of a reported plane crash near Grant Creek on Mackay River, east of Golden Isles Aviation in St. Simons Island, Ga., Monday.

According to the report, Coast Guard Sector Charleston watchstanders were notified at 7:10 p.m. of FAA reports of lost radar contact with a twin-engine plane carrying two people and subsequent reports from the public of crash-like noises near Grant Creek.

A helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Savannah, Ga., and a boatcrew from Coast Guard Station Brunswick, Ga., helped search the area, and as of last night, crews reported multiple debris fields consistent with a small plane crash but have not located either of the two people reportedly aboard the plane.

The Glynn County Police Department is also assisting, and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources is leading the water search.
