Cleveland officials say more than 120 pieces of debris have been recovered — many consistent with the type of plane that disappeared over Lake Erie last week.
A statement says officials are not sharing details about the debris or its location because it is part of an active investigation.
The Columbus-bound Cessna 525 Citation carrying six people disappeared shortly after takeoff from Burke Lakefront Airport.
A business executive was reportedly piloting the plane carrying his wife, two teenage sons and two neighbours.
Officials from CFB Trenton took part in the search, with a C-130 Hercules joining the effort shortly after the report came in.
