usatoday – Plane carrying Gwen Lara crashes into lake

NASHVILLE – Controversial food guru and church leader 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, have announced the authorities.

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. Rutherford County Fire 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 seeking (…) to search for living victims at this stage.”

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