The U.S. Air Force joined Pennsylvania State Police in searching for the two. WNEP reported that pinging the 58-year-old father’s cellphone and 13-year-old daughter’s iPad led search and rescue crews directly to the crash site, where the father and daughter were found huddled together for warmth. The names of the pair, who were suffering from hypothermia when found, have not been released.

The FAA is investigating why the plane crashed.
