ANTLERS, Okla. (AP) -- Searchers have recovered the remains of three people killed in the crash of a twin-engine airplane in southeastern Oklahoma.

The search for a fourth victim was suspended Monday night due to darkness. Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Kera Philippi says ground crews will return to the crash site Tuesday to resume the search.

Civil Air Patrol Major Charles Newcomb says the remains were found in a field of crash debris about four miles west of Antlers Municipal Airport.

Philippi identified the dead as: 48-year-old Jon Peter Olson of Hitchcock, Texas; 49-year-old Perry Keith Price of Oklahoma City; and 60-year-old Albert Wayne Radko of Yukon.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Roland Herwig said the plane was registered to Olson.
