SALT LAKE CITY — Authorities say a small plane that was missing out of Colorado crashed into a steep ravine in Utah, killing the pilot.

The San Juan County Sheriff's Office says in a news release that deputies found the plane Thursday afternoon in the La Sal Mountains in southeastern Utah.

Officials say the pilot, 62-year-old Miles Reece of Bayfield, Colorado, was killed on impact. No other passengers were on the plane.

Reece left Durango, Colorado on his way to the backcountry of Idaho. A friend was accompanying him on the trip, flying another plane.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the crash.
