HALF MOON BAY, CA (AP) -

The wreckage of a single-engine plane reported missing on a flight from Northern California to Arizona has been found.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor tells The Associated Press that the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office reported finding the plane around 12 p.m. Tuesday about 400 yards west of the airport in Half Moon Bay that it left from. The wreckage was discovered by search crews on the ground.

The pilot's condition was not immediately clear. The San Mateo County Sheriff's office reported the pilot was killed in the crash.

The Aeropro two-seat aircraft lifted off from Half Moon Bay before dawn on Monday.

The pilot's wife reported him missing after the plane failed to arrive at Marana Regional Airport.

The report sparked a search that included the Coast Guard.
