(Juneau, Alaska-AP) -- The U-S Coast Guard in Alaska today was still searching for four Salt Lake City men, missing since their plane crashed Sunday night.

Two men survived the crash and swam to shore, where they were rescued.

The plane went down Sunday night near Gustavus, about 50 miles west of Juneau near the entrance to Glacier Bay National Park.

Two other men were seen swimming away from the crash, but they haven't been found yet. The Coast Guard says they hold out hope that they, too, had made it to the beach somewhere. There were two additional people on the plane. It's unclear if they made it out of the Cessna 4-0-1.

The plane ran out of gas before it could reach a landing strip.
