RENO, Nev., March 2 (UPI) -- One day after a U.S. Marine Corps jet crashed in a remote, mountainous region in Nevada, near a naval base, rescuers were still searching for the pilot of the plane Sunday.

The U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18C crashed at about noon E.S.T. Saturday at near Naval Air Station Fallon, about 60 miles east of Reno, Nev., CNN reported.

The plane appeared to be a "total loss," the Navy said.

The pilot, whose name hasn't been released, has yet to be located.

Investigators are looking into the cause of the crash.
