MONTROSE, Colorado (AP) — Authorities believe there are no survivors after a small plane crashed into a reservoir in the U.S.

Ouray County spokeswoman Marti Whitmore says five people were believed aboard the single-engine plane.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says it crashed in Colorado on Saturday afternoon. He says he didn’t yet know the cause of the accident.

Whitmore says search and rescue operations were suspended Saturday night, but no victims have been recovered. No identities have been released.

She says the aircraft crashed in up to 90 feet (27 meters) of water.
