    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 (Scranton) Times-Tribune that he couldn't identify the victims Sunday night because of the severity of their injuries.

    "At this point, I couldn't even tell if they're two adults," Conarton told the paper. "We're waiting for dental and medical records to piece everything together."

    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.
