FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said plane was flying at about 2,000 feet, some 8 miles southeast of the Tamiami airport.

Baez said investigators have no evidence of foul play. The search will end Saturday night if authorities can't find the body.

According to a report on the website Live ATC.Net, the pilot calmly radioed the air traffic controller. LiveATC.Net provides live air traffic-control broadcasts from control towers and radar facilities around the world.

"I have a door ajar and a passenger that fell down. I'm six miles from Tamiami," the pilot said.

"You said you've got a passenger that fell out of your plane?" the air traffic controller responds.

"That's correct, sir," the pilot said. "He opened the back door and he just fell out the plane."
