ABBEVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Authorities have identified the two men believed to be aboard a plane when an antique single-engine plane went missing near the Georgia-Alabama state line.

Henry County Sheriff William Maddox tells The Dothan Eagle (https://bit.ly/1wRSARx ) the men are Steven Alec Haase, the owner of the plane, and his friend, David Michael Marlow.

The small airplane, a Piper Cub, hasn’t been seen since taking off Tuesday in Headland. It never reached its destination in Eufaula.

Friend Doug Brown tells the newspaper the two men recently retired from the Army as pilots. He says Haase is from Dothan and Marlow is from New Brockton.

Civil Air Patrol Maj. Harvey Yarborough said in a statement Friday cell phone forensics helped narrow the search to a 1-square-mile area in Henry County along the Chattahoochee River.
