The Texas sheriff's office said late Saturday a body had been found after a twin-engine cargo plane carrying three passengers crashed into a bay east of Houston earlier. Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorn said at a news conference earlier that "it's probably a crash that nobody would be capable of surviving."
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued an alert on the Boeing 767 after losing radio contact approximately 30 miles southeast of Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport.
Video from CBS affiliate KHOU showed wreckage in the shallow water of Trinity Bay. There was rain in the area when air traffic control lost contact with the plane.
