A second body, along with the wreckage of a Brooksville plane that went missing last week, was recovered off the coast of Cedar Key on Sunday.
Sea Tow and Florida Air Recovery, working with the Levy County Sheriff's Office, located the wreckage in 10 to 12 feet of water about 7 miles off the coast of Cedar Key, according to officials.
The body of Hue Singletary, 60, was also was found and removed Sunday night before crews returned Monday afternoon to retrieve the plane.
Last week, rescue crews recovered the body of the plane's pilot, 65-year-old Jasper Jerrels, Singletary's fiancée. A search continues for Jerrels' 17-year-old son, Dylan.
Lt. Scott Tummond, spokesman for the Levy County Sheriff's Office, said it was one of the worst plane wrecks he has seen.
"It was one of the hardest impacts," Tummond said. "The plane was just in shambles."
The aircraft took off from Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional Airport bound for Cedar Key for lunch on Sun., Feb. 12, Coast Guard officials said.
It last appeared on radar about 7 miles south of the island at 11:06 a.m. that day, according to the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center.
According to a member of one of the recovery crews, one side of the white Piper Cherokee plane was torn off when it crashed, making it difficult to see the aircraft's distinguishing features.
No flight plan was filed for the flight and none was required. If one had been filed, officials could have known sooner the plane didn't make it to Cedar Key.
The aircraft will be taken to a facility in Jacksonville for investigation.
