ANTLERS, Okla. (AP) _ Federal investigators are now searching for parts and debris from a plane that crashed Sunday near Antlers and killed all four men on board.

The body of the fourth and final victim was recovered Wednesday about 500 feet from the fuselage in a rugged area west of the Antlers airport. The bodies of the other three were recovered Monday.

Killed in the crash were Perry Price of Oklahoma City, Albert Radko of Yukon, co-pilot Jon Olsen of Hitchcock, Texas, and pilot Charles Howard of Houston. The four were flying from Oklahoma City to a convention in Orlando, Florida.

Hector Cassanova with the National Transportation Safety Board says investigators will now collect the wreckage and piece it together to determine what may have caused it to crash.

He says the wreckage is scattered over a two-and-a-half mile area and a preliminary report on the crash is expected by Tuesday.
