SHERMAN, Texas (AP) - Officials have recovered a single-engine plane that crashed into Lake Texoma in southern Oklahoma, but the search for the pilot continues.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Ashley Hampton tells the Sherman Herald-Democrat (https://bit.ly/1JQx6Za ) the plane was recovered Thursday afternoon. No bodies were found inside. On Friday, divers are set to search for the pilot.

Federal Aviation Administration Spokesman Lynn Lunsford said the plane was conducting low passes over the lake Wednesday morning when it crashed. He says the Grumman AA1 was registered out of Durant, Oklahoma.

Marshall County Undersheriff Danny Cryer says the plane crashed in the lake near Kingston, Oklahoma.

Cryer has said it’s believed the pilot was alone in the aircraft.

The lake extends for miles along the Texas border, with the eastern portion extending northward into Oklahoma.
