The plane left St. Ignace in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula on Saturday night, bound for Mackinac Island. The Coast Guard’s Cleveland office said the plane didn’t arrive as expected about 8 p.m. Saturday.

Searchers found the wreckage Sunday afternoon on the Lake Huron shore, about 3 miles north of St. Ignace. Michigan State Police identified the men on the plane as 52-year-old Thomas Phillips, who had homes in Kirkland, Wash., and Mackinac Island; and 29-year-old Joseph Pann Jr. of St. Ignace.

Federal Aviation Administration records show the plane was owned by the charter company Great Lakes Air Inc.
