Four Floridians are dead after a small plane crashed in an extremely remote section of the Great Dismal Swamp in Virginia on Friday, according to Virginia State Police.
Lt. Curtis Hardison of Virginia State Police identified the four people in the crash as 61-year-old Theodore Bradshaw of Fort. Lauderdale, who was the pilot of the plane, 48-year-old Mary Anne Bradshaw of Fort Lauderdale, and 64-year-old Charles Rodd and 58-year-old Diane Rodd of Palm Beach.
Authorities said they were flying in to attend a wedding that happened Thursday.
WPLG-TV reports their bodies have not yet been recovered, as police said the crash site is deep in a heavily wooded area.
The Civil Air Patrol, park rangers and rescue personnel searched on the ground and by boat through the area in the northern part of the swamp. Canine teams also were brought in.
The cause of the plane crash is unknown. Officials said NTSB was on the way to the scene of the wreckage.
