(UNDATED) - A Plainfield teen who was attempting to fly around the world has crashed in Pago Pago, American Samoa.

The body of 17-year old Haris Suleman has been recovered, but the body of his father Babar, has not yet been found.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash that happened shortly after takeoff Wednesday.

Haris was attempting to become the youngest person to fly around the world in a single-engine plane in 30 days.

The father-son team left the Greenwood, Indiana airport just days after Haris finished his junior year of high school.
