EPHRATAH, N.Y. (AP) — The three people on board a volunteer medical flight that crashed in central New York on Friday were a 64-year-old cancer patient, his wife and a pilot from Connecticut.

The daughter of 58-year-old Evelyn Amerosa said Sunday her mother was on the Angel Flight with her husband, Frank, when it crashed in Ephratah, about an hour outside Albany.

The daughter of John Campbell of Stamford, Conn., says her father was the pilot.

The bodies of Campbell and Evelyn Amerosa have been recovered.

Town Supervisor Todd Bradt says more than 100 rescuers searched for Frank Amerosa into Sunday night but did not find him. The Fulton County Sheriff's Department says the Utica man is presumed dead.

The search will continue Monday.
