SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP)-- Peter Tomarken, host of the hit 1980s game show "Press Your Luck," and his wife were killed when their small plane crashed into Santa Monica Bay.
According to the Internet Movie Database, Tomarken was 63.
Coroner's officials identified the two bodies late this afternoon. Tomarken's death was first reported by "Entertainment Tonight."
The plane was on a volunteer medical transport flight to San Diego to pick up a passenger who needed treatment at UCLA Medical Center.
A third person aboard the plane remains missing.
The Beech A-36 went down 200 yards offshore while apparently trying to return to Santa Monica Airport because of engine trouble.
