MIAMI (AP) - Police have identified the missing Florida man who they say fell from a small plane into the Atlantic Ocean.

Miami-Dade Police Department spokesman Javier Baez identified him Friday as 42-year-old Gerardo Nales of Key Biscayne, an island southeast of Miami not far from where he fell into the water.

Air and water rescue units continue searching for Nales, who police say either jumped or fell from the Piper airplane Thursday afternoon shortly after takeoff. The pilot was the only other person on board. His identity not been released.

The pilot radioed in a mayday call to air traffic controllers and returned safely to Tamiami Executive Airport south of Miami.
