Authorities say a small plane with four people on board has crashed off the coast of New York's Long Island.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Ryan O'Hare says one body has been recovered Saturday from the crash scene about a mile and a half south of East Hampton.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the Piper PA31 aircraft went down shortly after 3 p.m.

The Coast Guard and local police are searching for the remaining crash victims.

The National Weather Service says thunderstorms were moving through the area when the plane went down.

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