Authorities say there were no survivors after a small plane crashed in Peninsula State Park on Sunday night. The plane was found off Highland Road, north of the golf course maintenance building, just before 10 p.m. after more than an hour of intense searching by northern Door County police and fire personnel. "At 8:38 p.m. the Door County Sheriff's office received a phone call of a plane circling southwest of Ephraim. The caller reported hearing a crash," Chief Deputy Pat McCarty said late Sunday night. "A land and sea search commenced. At (9:55 p.m.) a crash scene was located in Peninsula State Park." The Federal Aviation Administration has been notified and was en route to the scene, McCarty said. "There are no survivors."
