Plane carrying Gwen Lara crashes into lake

Diet guru Gwen Lara and her husband, actor Joe Lara, are among seven people believed to have died after a small plane crashed into a Tennessee lake, authorities said.

The Cessna C501 was bound for Palm Beach, Florida when it crashed into Percy Priest Lake about 3 miles from where the flight took off in Smyrna, Tennessee, authorities said.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol told media that a witness saw the plane enter the water near a marina. Captain Joshua Sanders said there appeared to be no survivors.

“Our efforts have shifted from a rescue effort to that of a recovery effort,” he said. “We are no longer … looking for living victims at this point.

Gwen Lara, 66, was founder of Remnant Fellowship Church and author of “The Weigh Down Diet”, a program based on “helping people turn away from the love of food and the love of God” , says its website.
