    JSO confirms its dive team is assisting NTSB in the operation.

    An Action News Jax source says the wreckage is that of a plane that crashed off the coast of Jacksonville in December.

    Sky Action News Jax is over the scene near the Mayport Jetties, where a dive team and mobile command unit responded.

    Action News Jax reporter Christy Turner saw the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Dive Team had several units in the area, and two JSO boats tied to the dock.

    Authorities say a father and son were on board a plane on Dec. 20 traveling from Orlando to New Jersey when it went down in severe weather.

    Investigators initially believed the plane crashed off the coast of Ponte Vedra but later said it went down off the coast of Mayport.

    Action News Jax is working to figure out if weather played a factor in the crash.

    The NTSB said it cannot confirm the wreckage found Tuesday is the missing plane.

    Action News Jax has reached out to multiple agencies, including JSO, the Coast Guard and the Federal Aviation Administration.
