CAPE MAY, N.J. (AP) - Authorities are searching for the pilot of a single-engine plane that illegally landed on a Coast Guard beach in New Jersey.

The Coast Guard Training Center in Cape May increased security after the Piper PA12 landed on its beach just before 8 p.m. Sunday.

The Coast Guard says officers became aware of the incident when the plane was spotted on closed-circuit cameras.

There was no sign of the pilot.

Authorities say the plane is owned by a company that uses it to fly banners over the beach. The company tells The Press of Atlantic City that an employee used the plane without permission.
