Florida crews have apparently recovered the body of a 13-year-old Kansas boy who was killed with his parents and three siblings when the single-engine plane they were in crashed in central Florida.

The family's single-turboprop plane went down Thursday in a 4,900-acre preserve about 50 miles southwest of Orlando. The victims were identified as Ron Bramlage, his wife, Rebecca, and their four children, all of Junction City.

The Polk County, Fla., Sheriff's Office said officers found Boston Bramlage's body Friday afternoon a half mile from the main crash site. The office said the identification is preliminary until tests are done, but that the search has been discontinued.

Sheriff Grady Judd said crews are relieved to have found the boy's body so surviving family members can "have some sort of closure."
