Crews will try Monday to remove a body from a plane that crashed into Lake Superior near Duluth.

Duluth Fire Department officials say the initial report came from the Duluth International Airport tower at 11:30 a.m. The tower lost contact with a single-engine white-and-maroon plane with at least one occupant. A witness told fire officials they had heard an impact near Brighton Beach.

The plane was located around 9:30 p.m. Saturday. The search was called off around 11:00 p.m. after the body of what is believed to be the pilot was located.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
