The plane crashed into the sea under unknown circumstances. There are three occupants on board.

Authorities in the Dominican Republic said Wednesday that they have recovered debris floating in the ocean they believe is linked to a small plane that recently crashed with three people aboard.
Rescue crews found two aircraft seats, pieces of fuselage and a backpack but no sign of the couple from Tennessee and a Canadian man who were aboard the plane, Enmanuel Souffront, director of a commission that investigates airline accidents.
The passengers were identified as Charles and Candy Ritzen and photographer Benjamin Cole Brown, Aviation Civil Institute spokesman Hector Olivo told the AP.
All three occupants are presumed to have died in the crash.
