CORDES LAKES, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say two bodies have been found in the wreckage of a small plane in a remote area in Yavapai County.

County Sheriff's officials say an Arizona Department of Public Safety helicopter located a downed non-commercial aircraft about 5 { miles east southeast of Cordes Lakes shortly after noon Monday.

Federal Aviation Administration officials say the single-engine Lancair 235 had been reported missing after departing Saturday from Deer Valley Airport near Phoenix for Page Municipal Airport.

They say two people were believed to be aboard the plane.

Rescue crews say the plane was found upside down on its wings and two people aboard were dead.
