Angel Flight passengers identified; search continues for patient

EPHRATAH, N.Y. — Authorities investigating the crash of a volunteer medical flight returned to the site Sunday to scour the woods and a nearby pond for a passenger, who remains missing days after the bodies of his wife and the pilot were found.

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Department had initially said the bodies of two passengers were found when the twin-engine aircraft went down Friday night with three people aboard in Ephratah, a small town about an hour west of Albany. But Sgt. Brian Van Nostrand corrected that report Sunday, saying the bodies of the female passenger and the pilot have been found, but crews are still searching for the male passenger.
