YUMA, Ariz. -- The Yuma County sheriff's office says one person has been found dead after a small civilian plane crashed on a military bombing range in southwestern Arizona.

The single-engine plane was found by U.S. Border Patrol agents Wednesday morning about 15 miles south of Interstate 8 and 50 miles southeast of Yuma on the Air Force's Barry Goldwater bombing range.

The sheriff's office was withholding the name of the person killed until next of kin are notified.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says searchers had been looking for a Piper Cherokee that took off from Tucson on Nov. 23. The pilot's husband reported her missing and a search was launched.
