Hamptons 'builder to the stars' feared dead in plane crash

Deadly plane crash off of Long Island

Reed says Coast Guard officers are "stricken by this loss".

East Hampton Town Police identified the people on board as 70-year-old builder Bernard Krupinski, 70-year-old Bonnie Krupinski, 22-year-old William Maerov and 47-year-old Jon Dollard.

Mr. Krupinski has built the palatial homes owned by such Hamptons luminaries as Martha Stewart and Billy Joel.

The Coast Guard along with state and local agencies searched for more than 33 hours and covered a 646 square-mile area trying to locate those missing.

The FAA says the plane went down shortly before 3 p.m.

According to a press release from the East Hampton Police Department, "extreme weather" was reported in the area at the time of the crash.

Grieving loved ones hunkered down at the Krupinski compound in East Hampton, with private security guards turning away reporters.

Captain Anderson said the Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the cause of the crash.

East Hampton Police Chief Michael Sarlo confirmed that a small plane lost contact with the East Hampton Airport about 1 mile south of the airport.

It marks the second small plane crash on Long Island this week.

Search crews on Sunday continued to scour the eastern edge of Long Island after a plane carrying a prominent homebuilder and his family crashed a day earlier.

Anyone with information has been encouraged to contact the Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound command center at 203-468-4401 or on the radio at VHF-FM marine radio channel 16.

East Hampton Town Police Chief Michael Sarlo would confirm only that a plane had crashed and that police had set up a command post at Indian Wells Beach.

Seat cushions and personal items were found in the debris field but the plane sunk.
