ST. CROIX - In the first day after the mission to locate the small charter plane and three of its occupants that crashed just south of St. Thomas on Saturday morning turned from rescue to recovery, search crews are reporting that they had a difficult day that yielded no results.
At sunset Monday, after three full days of searching, the U.S. Coast Guard pulled its resources and ended its search-and-rescue mission for veteran pilot Kirby Hodge and passengers Rachel Hamilton and attorney Darwin Carr.
