The wreckage of a single-engine airplane that left El Reno Monday morning was discovered by another pilot Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.

The bodies of two people were found inside the wreckage, Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper Betsy Randolph said.

Their identities were not released.

About 3:45 p.m., the crash was reported in a Texas County field, about three miles north and four and a half miles west of Guymon, Randolph said.

The plane left El Reno Monday morning, and was last seen near Guymon. The plane was headed to Colorado Springs, Colo., but the pilot's relatives reported the aircraft missing on Tuesday, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford said.

The wreck of the single-engine Mooney aircraft was mostly destroyed by fire, he said.

The plane is registered to Neil J. Asting of Monument, Colo., according to an FAA plane registry.
