For two days the Glynn County Sheriff's Office, Georgia DNR, U.S. Coast Guard and other agencies searched a marsh area in Wallys Leg, near Grants Creek -- just east of Brunswick-Golden Isles Airport.
Crews had been searching for the plane since the plane dropped off radar late Monday afternoon and was seen falling from the sky.
After sonar indicated possible wreckage, divers were utilized to find the plane and recover the bodies. The NTSB said the bodies of the victims were found in their seats in the plane and with their seat belts on.
National Transportation Safety Board investigator Shawn Etcher says a crane lifted the aircraft from a marshy area.
