The aircraft vanished from radar at 12:07 p.m. Sunday shortly after the pilot had checked in with air traffic control. The last transmission gave no indication of trouble.
The strewn wreckage was sighted Monday morning on a jagged ridge in the Santa Ana Mountains.
The crash site is at the 2,100-foot level of the 4,000-foot Pleasants Peak. Officials said visibility in the area was limited Sunday because of fog and overcast skies.
