TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson man and his father were found unhurt after the discovery of their small plane spurred a multi-agency search.

According to the Cochise County Sheriff's Office, search and rescue personnel  from Cochise and Graham counties and the Arizona Department of Public Safety responded to the crash site near Wells and Ashcreek roads, about 30 miles northwest of Willcox on Sunday.

The plane was discovered by a man who was feeding cattle on his ranch. The pilot was not with the plane.

The pilot was found walking along a road by a Graham County SAR Coordinator headed to the crash site.

The pilot, a 39-year-old Tucson man, reported that he tried to land for a hunting trip, but the plane was damaged upon landing.

The landing gear, wing and propeller were damaged.

The pilot and his passenger, his 77-year-old father, camped a few miles from the crash site.

When found, the pilot had left his father at a house and was on his way to another house to call for help. Neither man was injured.

The Federal Aviation Administration was notified and the investigation is concluded as an accident.
