The Coast Guard is searching for a plane that departed from Catalina Island over the weekend and was bound for Van Nuys Airport, but never arrived.

A single-engine Cessna 172 took off from Catalina Island Airport on Saturday and was reported overdue when it failed to arrive at its destination, said Ian Gregor, a spokesman with the Federal Aviation Administration.

The FAA then alerted the Coast Guard, which is conducting the search, he said.

Two people were aboard the plane, Gregor said.

The aircraft’s tail number is N739ZE.
