SEABECK, Wash. (AP) - Officials have not yet officially identified the pilot lost when a small plane crashed Monday in the Hood Canal.

The Coast Guard says it has notified the pilot’s family, but it is not releasing his name.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the only missing aircraft in the area is an RV7. That’s a homemade single-engine two-seater.

FAA spokesman Allen Kenitzer says it’s missing from the Tacoma Narrows airport. It was on a visual flight rules flight, so no flight plan.

The plane is registered to a Fox Island, Washington, man.

The Coast Guard says a driver’s license was among debris found in Monday’s. Witnesses saw the plane go down in a cove near Seabeck, about 22 miles west of Seattle.
