Plane Crashes Off the Coast 

911 calls began to come in just after six o’clock Sunday evening. Witnesses saw a plane crash into the bay near Belfast.

Belfast police called in the Coast Guard.

They brought boats and a helicopter, and searched the waters all night for the pilot and the wreckage of the plane.

The Searsport Harbormaster is helping, along with several other local boaters:

&quot:We haven’t found the wreckage yet, and we haven’t found the person who was piloting the plane. So it’s still a search and rescue at this point.&quot:

There are unconfirmed reports that a single red flare was fired late Sunday night.

There has been no word yet on how long the Coast Guard will continue the search.

They’ve set up a command post in the Rockland area.

The pilot’s name has not been released.
