Search teams looking for a small plane that crashed in Lake Erie with six people aboard are checking reports that debris has washed ashore and will resume their search on Monday, Cleveland city officials said on Sunday.

The Cessna Citation 525 went down on Thursday night shortly after taking off from Burke Lakefront Airport north of downtown Cleveland.

The plane was carrying John Fleming, 46, president and chief executive of Ohio-based liquor distribution company Superior Beverage Group; his wife, Sue; their teenage sons Jack and Andrew; and two friends, company officials have said.

The search for the plane will resume on Monday after darkness forced a halt to the operation late on Sunday, a spokesman for Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson said in a statement.
