MILWAUKEE - Two people are dead after a single engine plane went down in Lake Michigan near a Milwaukee suburb.
Milwaukee Fire Department Assistant Chief Michael Romas says rescuers found two bodies in the plane underwater. He says they don't know if anyone else was aboard but were still searching the water Saturday evening just in case.
Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Investigator Lesley Kenney says her office was notified at about 5:30 p.m.
Petty Officer Chris Yaw of the U.S. Coast Guard says they were notified at around 4 p.m.
Saturday after air traffic controllers at Milwaukee's Mitchell International Airport lost radar and radio contact with the plane about a mile offshore near Cudahy.
In an email, Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Elizabeth Cory says the plane departed from Racine late Saturday afternoon.
MINOCQUA - By the time most of us finish breakfast, we already start planning what to eat for lunch.
For some kids all around the world, that next meal sometimes never comes.
The Food for Kidz Minocqua committee will lend a helping hand to change that Saturday morning.
Lakeland Union High School's common area will transform into a full-blown assembly line.
Food for Kidz volunteers will pour and pack ingredients into plastic bags.
The goal is 175,000 packed meals.
Food for Kidz needs more volunteers by tomorrow to meet that goal.
"If you haven't experienced this, come out and try it and you'll go away with just a great feeling," said Food for Kidz co-chair John Breiten.
Kids and adults of all ages are welcome to walk in to volunteer.
The food packages will be shipped off to anywhere from Honduras to Mozambique.
Some special meals will be set aside and sent to local communities in the Northwoods.
"It's just a great, fun community event. I think the kids especially take something away that they are giving beyond themselves," said Food for Kidz sponsor and Lakeland Union High School Spanish teacher Karen Roerich.
Walk-in volunteers are welcome to attend either packing shift tomorrow morning.
The first shift is from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. The second shift is from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
If you can't make it out to Lakeland Union High School Saturday, donations are always welcome.
