Video from NBC-2

— Crews combing the site of a small plane crash in the Florida Everglades have found the bodies of all four people on board.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office says in a news release that two adult males, an adult female and a young boy were discovered as of Tuesday morning. The single-engine plane went down Sunday evening west of Fort Lauderdale.

Authorities haven't released the names of the victims, but Shirley Barber said her son, Bruce Barber, was aboard the plane with his wife and teenage son. She did not know the name of the fourth victim.

Shirley Barber said the family was "definitely" on the aircraft, flying back from this weekend's football game between Florida and Tennessee in Gainesville. She said the Barbers' daughter, Chloe, had stayed behind in South Florida.
