OCEANO, Calif. (AP) - Wreckage believed to be from a small airplane that crashed off the Central California coast has been found.
The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Department says that on Sunday a dive team located a debris field including a wing and fuselage.
No human remains were found.
Authorities have said they believe the pilot was 63-year-old David Brian Casey of Friday Harbor, Wash., and he was accompanied by a passenger, 52-year-old Alan George Gaynor of Los Angeles.
The aircraft was reported down off Oceano on Jan. 14. The Sheriff's Department says it was finally located after all information was gathered from witnesses, radar, sonar and depth finders.
Recovery of the wreckage will be coordinated with the National Transportation Safety Board.
