SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Inclement weather stopped the search yesterday for survivors of a small plane that crashed into the Atlantic Ocean after authorities recovered the remains of one of six people on board.

The U.S. Coast Guard and Puerto Rican police planned to resume the search today off the island's north coast, officials said. Authorities, working through heavy rain and high seas, recovered the shark-mutilated remains of one unidentified man in the ocean off the city of Quebradillas, said Manuel Gomez, a police spokesman.

The pilot and all five passengers are U.S. citizens, Coast Guard spokesman Ricardo Castrodad said. The privately owned Cessna 206 was flying from La Romana, Dominican Republic, to San Juan, according to Luis Luhring, the president of the plane's charter company, Tropical Aviation Corp.
