A husband and wife from the Twin Cities were among the 10 people who died in the crash of a float plane into Washington state's Puget Sound over the weekend, Coast Guard officials said Tuesday.

The single-engine DHC-3 Turbine Otter had left Friday Harbor, a popular tourist spot, for the Seattle suburb of Renton, when it went down Sunday with no distress call.

One body was recovered by a civilian, but the others remain unaccounted for and may never be recovered, according to the Coast Guard, which has not disclosed the name of the victim found in the water.
