Authorities have released the names of two men aboard an airplane that went missing over Lake Michigan on Sunday night, May 12th.

Randal S. Dippold of Perry, 65, and Emanuel Z. Manos of Monroe, 53, were reportedly flying in the Beechcraft Bonanza from Ontonogon in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, headed to Monroe, near lower Michigan's southern border.

Air traffic control directed the plane, which was experiencing engine trouble, to an airport in Frankfort Michigan, southwest of Traverse City, on the northwestern edge of the lower peninsula, the Traverse City Record-Eagle reports, but the plane dropped from radar five miles west of Frankfort.

So far, there are no signs of a crash, however, a father and daughter in Lake Ann, a village in Benzie County near Traverse City, reported hearing what sounded like a plane crash. Lake Ann was searched on Monday to no avail.

The Benzie County Sheriff's Office said there are indications the plane went down in Lake Michigan about four miles offshore from Frankfort, and that the search is now a recovery effort.
