Divers find missing plane off coast of Texas


CORPUS CHRISTI (WKOW) -- Military officials say they have found the wreckage of training plane that went missing three weeks ago off the Texas coast.  Navy officials say two people were on the plane including a man from East Troy, Wisconsin.

But Lt. Brett Dawson said Monday that officials won't know whether the body of 29-year-old Houston native Lt. John Joseph Houston is on the aircraft until diving conditions improve.

Poor conditions prevented officials from raising the wreckage from 40 feet of water after it was found Sunday about 1.5 miles off the coast of Matagorda Island.

The plane went missing Oct. 28 during a routine training mission. The body of a second pilot was recovered Oct. 30.

The body of Wisconsin native Lt. Bret Travis Miller, 30, was found about 11 miles north of Port Aransas, which is southwest of Matagorda Island.
