Dive teams in Tennessee found human remains believed to belong to the seven victims — including a Christian diet guru — who are presumed dead after a small plane crashed into a Tennessee lake, reports said Sunday.
Local emergency agencies uncovered the remains and pieces of the plane in Percy Priest Lake sometime Sunday, the Tennessean reported.
Rutherford County Fire Captain and Incident Commander John Ingle said the crash site and corresponding debris field is “half of a mile wide” and the recovery effort is still underway as officials use drones to survey the site, the outlet said.
It’s not clear who the remains belonged to but Christian diet guru Gwen Shamblin Lara and her husband Joe Lara, who played Tarzan on television in the 1980s and 1990s, were both on board along with five other adults.
The Cessna 500 was headed from Smyrna to Palm Beach International Airport in West Palm Beach, Florida when it crashed soon after
