Hollywood, Fla. (AP) Authorities believe two small planes collided in midair above the Florida everglades during the weekend, and they are searching for four people presumed dead.

Authorities have not identified the presumed victims, but the Aspen Times reports that Bryan Sax of Aspen is among the missing.

The planes' wreckage was spotted this morning about 25 miles west of Fort Lauderdale after the planes took off yesterday. But no bodies have been found in the swampy area accessible only by airboat.

Broward County Sheriff's officials say the planes' occupants were on flights from a local flight school.

Sheriff's officials say the planes were operating under visual flight rules, meaning they had responsibility for avoiding other airplanes.
