On Sunday afternoon, a plane left Salisbury, Maryland with a destination of Robert J. Miller Airpark. When the plane didn't arrive on schedule and attempts to contact the pilot were unsuccessful, state police were notified.

The pilot's cellphone was tracked to Bass River State Forest, where the plane was spotted by a US Coast Guard helicopter.

State police did not release any information on the pilot or say whether the pilot was alone or had a passenger.

No cause for the crash has been determined, but the drastic weather change over the weekend is a likely explanation. A cold front moved across New Jersey Saturday night, bringing wind gusts 40-50mph along with rain, hail and some snow.
