Authorities have identified the family of four killed in a plane crash near Williston Municipal Airport Saturday.

Williston Police Chief Dennis Strow said 37-year-old Nathan J. Enders, his 42-year-old wife Laura, and their two sons, 7-year-old Jaden and 5-year-old Eli all died.

Nathan Enders was an experienced pilot, Strow said. The family was from Williamson, Ga.

Strow Tuesday night released a family selfie of the four sitting inside a plane.

Authorities say the family's 1948 Cessna 170 "tail dragger" was flying from Georgia to Florida Saturday when it stopped at the Williston airport.

They believe the plane crashed around 3:10 p.m. but the wreckage wasn't noticed until about 24 hours later.

Levy County authorities responded around 1:12 p.m. Sunday and found the wreckage at the tree line on the north side of the taxi way.

The NTSB says it's using every resource to determine what happened.
