Search and rescue crews returned Wednesday morning to an area 4 miles from Brunswick to search for a plane that crashed there on Monday night.

Crews are looking through the marshes of the Mackay River in Glynn County for a missing Piper PA-44 aircraft. Investigators said two people were on board the twin-engine plane that was traveling to Jacksonville from Concord, NC. 

Residents say they heard the engine of a small plane stall out followed by a loud boom. 

Officials have still not released the names of the passengers on board or where they are from.
