Update, July 8, 1:20 p.m.:
COEUR d'ALENE, Idaho - The search continues Wednesday for the remaining two victims of Sunday's deadly plane collision over Lake Coeur d'Alene.
According to the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office, weather conditions on Tuesday, July 7, made efforts to operate sonar difficult. In addition, the remote operated vehicle (ROV) being used in the search also lost a thruster, which is making operations more difficult.
The Sheriff's Office noted that if the last two victims are unable to be found with sonar, it's possible they might be in the wreckage.
Six other victims have already been recovered. Once the remaining two are found, the Sheriff's Office will hand the site over to recovery teams to retrieve the aircraft.
The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration have also begun investigation the incident and contacting witnesses.

COEUR d'ALENE, Idaho - The search efforts for the remaining two victim's of Sunday's deadly plane collision over Lake Coeur d'Alene remain ongoing.
On Tuesday, July 7, the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) reported that crews will continue searching areas of interest among the crash site for the last two victims. Six others have already been recovered.
According to the KCSO, the weather on Tuesday is causing some problems for using sonar on Tuesday but they will continue working. They are also hopeful salvage efforts for the planes may be able to begin by the end of the week.
The debris field for the crash site is said to be approximately 500 yards in size, with two primary sites that are a few hundred yards from each other.
A team from the National Transportation Safety Board arrived in Coeur d'Alene Monday night along with the Federal Aviation Administration to begin their investigation into the crash.
KCSO also noted that while there was some fuel leakage when the collision first happened, it has since dissipated and they've been in contact with state agencies to assist with more potential leakage during salvage operations.
