Two New Yorkers died when their private plane crashed over the weekend just outside Aspen, local authorities said.

Ruben Cohen and David Zara were found near the plane’s wreckage in Midway Pass after their 4:30 p.m. trip out of Aspen on Saturday never arrived in Des Moines, Iowa as scheduled, the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office said.

Local police received a report of a missing aircraft from a friend of one of the deceased at around 10:24 a.m. on Sunday, the release said.

Rescuers found the aircraft seven hours later, and a helicopter was able to land at the crash site to recover the bodies, the sheriff’s office said.

The men were flying in a Beechcraft B36, also known as a Bonanza, according to the Aspen Times.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.
