(AP) The search continues for the pilot of a helicopter that crashed into a lake in southwest Virginia.


Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller says the helicopter, which was owned by a supermarket chain, was found early Saturday upside down in about 25 feet of water in South Holston Lake. The pilot was the only person aboard the Bell 407 helicopter when it crashed late Friday into the lake in Abingdon, near the Tennessee line.


Geller says the Federal Aviation Administration will investigate.


The helicopter was owned by the Food City grocery chain, the corporate sponsor of the Nationwide race Friday night at Bristol Motor Speedway.


Geller said state police are bringing in a sonar device to search for the pilot.
