CHESAPEAKE, Va.  - State police say four people from Florida have died in the crash of a small aircraft in an extremely remote section of a Virginia swamp.
    
Using a privately-owned helicopter during search efforts Friday - more than 24 hours after the plane was reported missing - authorities located the wreckage around 4 p.m. in Chesapeake's Great Dismal Swamp. Crews were able to reach the crash site later Friday evening.
    
In a news release, Virginia State Police said the victims included 61-year-old pilot Theodore Bradshaw of Ft. Lauderdale, who had more than 30 years of flying experience. The other victims were Bradshaw's wife, 48-year-old Mary Anne Bradshaw, 64-year-old Charles Rodd and 58-year-old Diane Rodd, both of Palm Beach, Fla.
    
The Civil Air Patrol, park rangers and rescue personnel assisted in the search.
