Coast Guard searching for missing Navy plane

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - The Coast Guard says an overnight search yielded no sign of a Navy plane and two pilots who failed to return from a flight.

Petty Officer Randy Hale told The Associated Press early Thursday that search aircraft were out all night and "we haven't been able to find anything as of yet."

The search began Wednesday afternoon for the crew of a Navy T-34 training aircraft after an air traffic controller at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi in Texas lost contact with the pair.

The single-engine trainer's last known location was near San Jose Island, east of Rockport and 2 miles off shore in the Gulf of Mexico.
