OCEAN CITY, Md. — Crews have resumed their search for the remaining victim of a Maryland plane crash after encroaching storms and high winds forced them off the water last week.

State Police public information officer Sgt. DaVaughn Parker told The Daily Times of Salisbury on Thursday that state police, state Natural Resources police and Coast Guard crews would search the water until nightfall. Parker said Thursday’s findings would determine if crews would keep searching the water.

A four-seater Cessna 172S carrying two people, Benica Richards-Robinson and Marcson Ngwa, crashed last week near Assateague State Park after leaving the Baltimore area Wednesday. A body recovered last Friday was wearing clothing matching that of the pilot, Ngwa.

National Transportation Safety Board employee Keith Holloway says the agency’s investigation could take up to 18 months.
