FLORIDA -

The U.S. Coast Guard has suspended its search for a small plane that crashed off the coast of Florida while on its way to New Jersey with two people from Bridgewater on board.

Peter Renzulli, 51, and his son Daniel, 18, took off from an airport in Orlando on their way to Princeton.

The agency searched 1,400 square miles for just over two days before calling off the search Saturday.

Their attorney says both are accomplished pilots.
