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."

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