Searchers in Alaska plan to head to the site where an F-22 Raptor jet crashed in remote, rugged terrain and begin looking through the wreckage for a missing pilot, from Jackson, Michigan.

Air Force Capt. Jeffrey Haney has been missing since Tuesday evening when his plane crashed during a training run about 100 miles north of Anchorage. He is assigned to the 525th Fighter Squadron at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.

Base spokesman John Pennell says searchers have been able only to give the area a sight survey. Logistics crews are setting up provisions near the wreckage for search teams heading there Friday.

Searchers found the crash site Wednesday morning.

Pennell says the Air Force has not established whether the ejection seat was deployed.
