A Long Island plane crash killed two and left two others missing after a search by the Coast Guard that has now been suspended. 

The Coast Guard says it has suspended a search for two of four people who were on a small plane when it crashed off the coast of Long Island, The Associated Press reported. The other two people were killed and their bodies recovered.

East Hampton Town Police had identified the people on the aircraft as 70-year-old Bernard Krupinski — a prominent builder of celebrities' homes — 70-year-old Bonnie Krupinski, 22-year-old William Maerov and 47-year-old Jon Dollard.

It was not immediately clear which two of the four passengers have been recovered.

The four were on a Piper PA31 aircraft that went down Saturday afternoon about a mile and a half (2.4 kilometers) south of East Hampton.

The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the cause of the crash.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the Piper PA31 aircraft went down about 3 p.m. Saturday. The crash scene was about a mile and a half (2.4 kilometers) south of East Hampton.

The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the cause of the crash.
