Searchers find cargo plane crash site in Alaska

Searchers have found a commercial cargo plane that crashed in southwest Alaska and pulled the bodies of the pilot and co-pilot.

The Anchorage Daily News reports the Beechcraft 1900 was found early Saturday after Friday's search was frustrated by low cloud ceiling, heavy snowfall and mountainous terrain.

The Ace Air Cargo plane crashed about 20 miles northeast of Dillingham in southwest Alaska.

The pilot and co-pilot were identified as 38-year-old Jeff Day and 20-year-old Neil Jensen from Anchorage.

The pilot of the Beechcraft 1900 told the Dillingham airport he was on approach Friday morning. But federal aviation officials issued an alert at 8:30 a.m. that the Ace Air Cargo plane did not land.
