Remains found in search for missing plane confirmed as human

Divers have been in the water since daybreak Wednesday in search of more wreckage from the private passenger plane that went down in Lake Erie.

According to officials, the plane, which took off from Cleveland Burke Lakefront Airport, was en route to Columbus, after its pilot and the passengers had attended a Cleveland Cavaliers game earlier on December 29.

According to the City of Cleveland, divers and crews started extracting debris from the water around 1:30pm.

Search efforts, which are expected to resume this week, have so far recovered the cockpit voice recorder, as well as debris, including a portion of the plane's tail section. During the search a wheel, an engine, several seats and windows from the plane and canopy were also found.

All six people who were on board are presumed dead.

All total, more than 170 pieces of the plane and some human remains have been recovered.

A memorial service was scheduled Monday in Canfield, near Youngstown, for the plane's pilot, Columbus business executive John T. Fleming, his wife, Sue, and their teenage sons, Jack and Andrew. At 2 p.m. on Sunday, there will be a service for both of them at the Liberty Presbyterian Church in Delaware County, where they were active members.

They were returning to Columbus after making the trip to a Cleveland Cavaliers game with their neighbor, 50-year-old Brian Casey, and his 19-year-old daughter, University of Wisconsin-Madison nursing student Megan Casey.

A medical examiner said Tuesday that DNA was used to identify the remains found Friday, but no other information was released.
