Authorities will resume searching for a third person killed in the crash of a small plane into a private lake in west Georgia.

Emergency crews suspended the search of Shadinger Lake near Carrollton just before 10 p.m. Sunday. Carroll County Fire Rescue Chief Gary Thomas says the search will resume at 9 a.m. Monday.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says the 1975 Cessna 182 had left Cobb County Airport-McCollum Field and crashed into the lake about 9 a.m. Sunday about three miles southwest of the University of West Georgia.

Officials believe the three people on board were headed to the Kobalt Tools 500 NASCAR race in Henry County.

The first crews to arrive found the bodies of a man and a woman. Authorities have not released the names of the three.
