Search continues for missing pilot

MARTIN COUNTY, FL (WFLX) -  The Coast Guard is continuing its search for the pilot who disappeared off the St. Lucie inlet Friday evening.

Andrei Postelnicu's plane was headed from Marathon to Vero Beach when it disappeared.

The Martin County Sheriff's Office says people found a boot and a backpack that belong to the pilot, a United Kingdom citizen, on area beaches.

The backpack had Postelnicu's identification and pilot's license in it.

The sheriff's office did not have an update on Postelnicu's whereabouts as of Monday morning.

Officials said Sunday if there was still no sign of Postelnicu or his plane, the Civil Air Patrol will use SONAR to search the ocean.

If anyone finds evidence on the beach, they are urged to call 911.
