U.S. Virgin Islands have recovered a body inside the wreckage of a small plane found on the ocean floor.


CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) Crews in the U.S. Virgin Islands have recovered a body inside the wreckage of a small plane found on the ocean floor.

The U.S. Virgin Islands government says the identity of the passenger recovered Saturday will not be publicly identified until relatives can be notified.

The Piper PA-23-250 plane went down a week ago off St. Thomas with four people aboard. One passenger survived the sea crash.

Authorities say the plane had been delivering newspapers to the island of St. Croix and was returning to St. Thomas after picking up passengers.

The U.S. Coast Guard suspended its search on Monday.

The islands' government says divers located the wreckage at a depth of 100 feet. One body was found inside the plane. The wreckage was towed back to St. Thomas.
