RICHMOND, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say they plan to use an underwater camera as they search for wreckage from the midair collision of two small planes that sent one crashing into San Francisco Bay.

Lead National Transportation Safety Board investigator Howard Plagens said Tuesday that crews with the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office are looking for additional pieces of the Cessna 210 that went into the water on Sunday.

Parts of the plane were discovered Monday under 13 feet of water about 1 1/2 miles off the Richmond shoreline east of San Francisco. The pilot has not been found or identified.

The pilot of the other plane was able to land at Eagle's Nest Airport in Amador County.
