NEWRY, Maine -- Wardens and emergency responders will return to Newry on Friday to recover the bodies of a pilot and three passengers who perished when a light plane crashed on a mountainside near the Sunday River ski area.

The rescue team reached the wreckage on Barker Mountain on Thursday night at dusk and confirmed that there were no survivors. Officials decided to wait until first light before bringing out the dead. Their names were not immediately released.

An investigator from the National Transportation Safety Board is scheduled to arrive at the scene later on Friday.
