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.
