Three men, including a former Coloradan, are presumed dead after a plane crash Thursday in Utah Lake.

Utah County Sheriff's Office Lieutenant Darren Gilbert says dive teams and other searchers resumed recovery efforts early today for the bodies.

Crews are also scouring the lake's shore for debris from the plane.

Gilbert says only about 25 percent of the plane has been recovered.

Missing are pilot Blaine Pugmire, of Springville, Utah and passengers Harold "Les" McGuire, of Highland and Ray Hooper of Mapleton.

McGuire graduated from Loveland High School in 1989.

Their single-engine turboprop crashed late Thursday on its final approach to Provo Municipal Airport.
