PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — Authorities have released the names of two men who were killed in a small plane crash in southern Colorado’s Huerfano County on Thursday.

Sheriff Bruce Newman identified the men Monday as 57-year-old Steven Huber and 69-year-old Bruce Dalton, who are believed to have been from Hillsborough, N.C. The men were the only two people on board the plane when it crashed.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports the Colorado Civil Air Patrol found the wreck in the southwestern part of the county. The exact location of the crash wasn’t released, but authorities say it was found at an elevation of 12,400 feet.

The air patrol found the plane while flying over the remote, mountainous region to check out a report of a signal from an emergency locator transmitter.
