A pilot and his plane that was reported missing on Saturday, Nov. 20, were found in the mountains 40 miles east of Big Bear City on Sunday, Nov. 21, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The pilot, the only occupant, was a lone fatality in the wreck of the Glassair III N129KT, said FAA spokesman Ian Gregor. The National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB) is investigating.

The San Bernardino County fire and sheriff’s department responded. Search and rescue teams hiked for six hours to find the wreckage, said Gloria Huerta of the Sheriff’s Department. A sheriff’s aviation unit hoisted down personnel with the NTSB, Fire Department and law enforcement.

The remains were delivered to the San Bernardino County coroner’s office on Tuesday, Nov. 23. As of Monday morning the body had not been identified.
