A Beechcraft Bonanza 35 single engine plane reported engine trouble on Sunday evening, May 12th, then dropped off radar over Lake Michigan.

That plane was believed to be carrying two men; Randal S. Dippold of Perry, 65, and Emanuel Z. Manos of Monroe, 53.

A dive team located the plane on Wednesday this week, 515 feet below the surface of Lake Michigan off the coast of Frankfort, Michigan, according to a Michigan State Police news release.  The plane was intact, the door was open and there were no bodies on board.

Police are now saying the men may have escaped the plane before it sank 4.5 miles off the northwest coast of Michigan's lower peninsula, the Detroit Free Press reports.  The search for the men continues.

Manos is the President of Detroit Salt Co., the Freep report indicates.  Dippold owns Airservice Enterprise, Inc., based in Howell.

A funeral service was held for Dippold at his church, Graham Community Church in Shaftsburg, on Wednesday, just two hours before the discovery of the empty plane.
