ABC News New York affiliate WABC-TV reports that 38-year-old Michael Faraldi was en route to Kingston-Ulster Airport from an airfield in Johnstown, Penn., when he crashed. The British-made BAC 167 Strikemaster reportedly made a low pass at the landing strip before hitting an ice-covered stretch of the Hudson between Albany and New York City.

Rescue workers were unable to locate Faraldi following the crash and a search was suspended late in the evening.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
