The National Transportation Safety Board will continue its search and investigation later on Tuesday, More said. The were no residents killed in the accident.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the Cessna 310 crashed under unknown circumstances about a half-mile northeast of Riverside Municipal Airport. The plane was headed to San Jose from Riverside, according to the FAA.

The people on board the plane were coming from a cheer conference at Disneyland, Moore said.
