EPHRATAH, N.Y. (AP) — A search for the body of a brain cancer patient who was on a volunteer medical flight that crashed last week and is presumed dead is going into its fourth day.

Frank and Evelyn Amerosa of Utica, N.Y., were aboard an Angel Flight on Friday night when the twin-engine aircraft went down in Ephratah, about an hour west of Albany.

Officials said John Campbell, 70, of Stamford, Conn., was flying the couple back from the Boston area, where Frank Amerosa was being treated for brain cancer.

The bodies of both Campbell and Evelyn Amerosa were recovered from the rural crash site.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the Piper PA 34 left Hanscom Field in Bedford, Mass., for Rome, N.Y., before it crashed just after 5 p.m. Friday.
