CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — The pilot of a small plane registered in Idaho and a passenger were killed in a crash in eastern Oregon.

Benton County sheriff’s deputies say they found the wreckage of the plane Monday morning after it failed to arrive in Corvallis as scheduled on Sunday afternoon.

Names of the victims were being withheld until their families were notified.

Deputies say the single-engine Cessna was registered to the U.S. Department of the Interior in Boise, Idaho.

It was located with a signal from a radio beacon aboard the plane.
