MARION, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say two people were not injured when their plane went down in a cornfield in eastern Iowa’s Linn County.

Deputies were sent to the area on Saturday afternoon after receiving a report that the plane was down about a mile east of Iowa Highway 13, around a mile south of the Marion Airport. They couldn’t find the plane.

A drone was used to spot the aircraft Sunday.

Authorities say pilot Bonnie Roth and student pilot Steph Draher were not hurt.

The incident is being investigated.
