BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- U.S. Coast Guard officials plan are continuing to search for two people aboard a small plane that went missing in the St. Simons Island area near Georgia's coastline.
The twin-engine plane disappeared from radar Monday evening. Residents in the area heard "crash-like noises" near Grant Creek on Mackay River, east of Golden Isles Aviation in St. Simons Island.
