HAWLEY, Minn. (AP) -- Clay County authorities have identified the victim of a fatal small-plane crash as Kevin Ferris of Duluth.

The Forum of Fargo, N.D., reports the 48-year-old was traveling from Superior, Wis., to Moorhead on Friday morning to visit his parents for Easter weekend. He was found dead after his plane crashed about four miles south of Hawley.

Sheriff Bill Bergquist says a search plane spotted the wreckage Friday afternoon.

Bergquist says Ferris may have tried to land the single-engine, two-seat Cessna plane because of fog.

The victim's girlfriend, Roz Randorf, says Ferris always wanted to be a pilot. She says he began flying two years ago.

She says he was a conscientious pilot who always took flying seriously. She says he'll be remembered for his kindness and gentle touch.
