EPHRAPAH, N.Y. - The wreckage from the small plane that went down in Fulton County last week is out of the water, but the search continues for the cancer patient who was on board.
Frank Amerosa, 64, is presumed dead but his body has not been found.
The main piece of the small Angel Flight plane was removed from a pond in Ephratah on Tuesday. The plane was coming from Boston, where Frank was being treated for brain cancer.
