Wednesday's weather limits missing plane search

The city reported on its blog that weather conditions allowed for search by water and shoreline, but that a police helicopter was not used.

It was being piloted by a beverage distribution company executive when it disappeared December 29.

Crews and vessels with the U.S. Coast Guard, Cleveland Division of Fire, Ohio Department of Natural Resources and the Underwater Marine Contractor Crews will remain on standby, and will continue searching the water when the weather conditions improve.

Weather and water conditions didn't allow for recovery efforts to begin December 31, but crews searched for the plane until darkness fell January 1.

Fleming, 46, his wife, Suzanne, their two sons, Jack, 15, and Andrew, 14, and neighbors Brian Casey, 50, and Megan Casey, 19, had attended a Cleveland Cavaliers game.

"Dive teams are very passionate at what they do", Bahhur said.

"Our family greatly appreciates the dedicated efforts of the rescue and recovery teams, and we are especially thankful for the outpouring of support thoughts and prayers from family, friends and the community", the statement reads.
