Looks like they've started again, but if he's been in the water this long then it really doesn't look good at all. Very sad piece of news.

From the ABC

Search still on for missing NT plane

A search will continue today for a pilot missing for three days off the Northern Territory coast.

Twenty-three-year-old Hadleigh Smith was last seen flying from Elcho Island in Arnhem Land on Thursday morning to deliver supplies to Aboriginal communities.

Debris belonging to the light plane was found 20 kilometres from the island on Friday and is being examined by investigators from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau.

Northern Territory police say helicopters and planes will keep searching for the pilot and the plane's fuselage today.

Ships and planes in the area are being asked to keep a lookout and police will follow up any information.
