LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Latest on a midair collision between two small planes (all times local):

5:35 p.m.

Authorities say two small planes have collided and crashed into the ocean off of Los Angeles harbor and there’s no word on survivors.

The Coast Guard says the midair collision took place around 3:30 p.m. Friday. It’s unknown how many people were on board.

There were reports of debris about two miles outside the harbor breakwater.

Los Angeles County lifeguard Capt. Ken Haskett says divers have found a plane tail number and a partial number from a second plane in the water.

About two dozen divers are working at the site but the wreckage may be at the bottom in 80 to 90 feet of water.
