OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) -- Deputies say searchers have found the wreckage of an airplane that crashed south of Portland in rural Clackamas County, and they recovered human remains from the site.

The Clackamas County Medical Examiner's Office on Friday identified the remains as belonging to 44-year-old Jared Sabin and his son 19-year-old Gavyn Sabin.

They are believed to have left Salem on Monday morning in a Cessna 150 for Troutdale. They encountered bad weather, however, and told air controllers they were changing their destination. Controllers lost contact with them after that.
