Three men from Niagara are dead after a small plane crashed during a flight from Virginia to Ontario.
The Federal Aviation Administration says the Piper PA-28 took off Sunday from Richmond International Airport and was headed to St. Catharines/Niagara District Airport.
Potter County coroner Kevin J. Dusenbury Sr. says the wreckage was found late Monday.
Pennsylvania state police identified the victims as 25-year-old Rifat Tawig, 19-year-old Benjamin Jeffries, and 18-year-old Corey Mijac.
The FAA said it lost contact with the flight at about 7 p.m. Sunday.
Emergency dispatchers say they were contacted by the FAA after the aircraft changed course to avoid a thunderstorm.
They lost radio contact with the plane when it was near a mountainous, remote area.
