NICHOLSON, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say the bodies of two people were found in the wreckage of a missing plane that was found crashed in a northeastern Pennsylvania field.

State police in Susquehanna County say the plane was located at about 10:30 a.m. Sunday in Lenox Township.

Coroner Anthony Conarton told The (Wilkes-Barre) Citizens' Voice ( ) that he couldn't identify the victims Sunday night because of the severity of their injuries.

Conarton said he is awaiting dental and medical records to help with the identifications.

The National Transportation Safety Board says the Cessna T-50 took off Labor Day in Sandusky, Ohio, heading for Wilkes-Barre, about 40 miles south of the crash.

Safety board spokesman Peter Knudson said the wreckage would be moved to "a secure location" to investigate the cause of the crash.
