Authorities say a husband and wife were found dead in a plane crash in western Arkansas.      Crews had been searching for the single-engine plane since it disappeared from radar on Monday afternoon.

The Civil Air Patrol says the crashed plane was located Tuesday morning in rural western Arkansas.     

Madison County Sheriff Phillip Morgan says the husband and wife were found dead at the scene of the crash. Their names have not yet been released, pending notification of relatives.

The Civil Air Patrol says the plane only had two people on board. It wasn't immediately clear who owned the aircraft.
