"CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico - Mexican authorities say they have sighted the wreckage of a small plane believed to have taken off from Los Angeles with four people on board.

The wreckage was reportedly found in the mountains of Baja California Saturday. It was apparently on the way to the nearby resort city of Cabo San Lucas.

Reports from Mexico indicate the plane hit a mountain north of the resort and broke into two parts.

City civil defense director Francisco Cota Marquez told the Associated Press rescuers saw the wreckage from the air, and are trying to reach the remote are where the plane was believed to have gone down.

United States Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor could not confirm which airport the plane had taken off from, or who could have been aboard.

The identities and nationalities of the people aboard the wrecked plane are unknown, but they are believed to have been tourists.
