Search efforts for a missing plane last seen departing Burke Lakefront Airport on Thursday night are expected to resume Tuesday, weather permitting.

According to the city of Cleveland, over 120 pieces of debris have been recovered so far, and many are consistent with what would be found on a Cessna 525 Citation, the type of aircraft that went missing.

Weather conditions for the search were favorable on Monday with fairly calm waters and light wind.

The search is in 35 to 45-foot water across a grid that stretches about 2 1/2 miles east to west across the shoreline and two miles north of the shore.

The city says seven vessels with four dive teams were part of Monday’s search. Teams from New York State Police, Akron Fire, Toledo Fire, Cleveland Metroparks Rangers and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources have joined the water, air and shoreline search efforts. Coast Guard boats and the Cleveland Police helicopter are also part of the search.
