Marine rescue crews are wrapping up their search after a report of a plane going down in Okanagan Lake.

Unconfirmed reports suggest emergency crews were contacted after a single caller claimed he/she saw what appeared to be a plane quickly descending toward the lake near Gyro Beach.

One person on the beach suggested it might have been an ultralight, known to frequent the area.

No one on shore reported seeing anything unusual.

Marine rescue has yet to find anything in the lake; reports indicate other boaters also didn’t see anything suspicious.
