HAWESVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Officials have confirmed that the body found at a plane crash site in western Kentucky is a pilot who went missing on Monday.

Kentucky State Police said Friday that the Hancock County coroner’s office and the Kentucky medical examiner’s office used dental records to determine the body was that of 70-year-old Robert Dalzell of Owensboro.

Dalzell’s plane was found Wednesday in thick woods in the Fordsville community of Hancock County. The Federal Aviation Administration is also investigating.

Police said earlier that Dalzell left the Owensboro Regional Airport on Monday morning and landed at Falls of Rough in Grayson County about 35 minutes later. He departed later from the Falls of Rough, but never returned to the Owensboro airport.
