LOS ANGELES (AP) - Searchers have found more debris from one of two small aircraft that collided last week off the Southern California coast.

Divers searching Sunday about 2 miles from Los Angeles Harbor found the bodies of two men and the wreckage of a small plane.

Authorities haven’t found the body of a 72-year-old woman believed to be the pilot of the second plane, or any sign of her aircraft.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Bruce Chase says searchers used several boats with sonar and a helicopter Monday. They found more debris from the plane spotted Sunday.

Authorities launched a massive search Friday after the small plane piloted by the woman was seen on radar colliding with the plane carrying two men, ages 61 and 81.

No names were released, but the woman’s husband identified her as Mary Falstrom of Torrance.

Searchers are contending with strong winds and choppy waters.
