Taipei: Taiwan has found the debris of a missing Air Force F-16V fighter plane that went missing on Tuesday during a routine training mission but did not find any sign of the pilot, reported local media.

Rescuers found debris belonging to a missing Air Force F-16V fighter on Wednesday morning but there were no signs of its pilot, according to the National Rescue Command Center (NRCC), reported Focus Taiwan.

A military UH-60M helicopter first spotted debris from the aircraft tires, at around 10:48 am Wednesday, said NRCC. However, it did not specify where the objects were seen. Later, the Taiwan military confirmed at 11:19 am that the debris belonged to the jet with the serial number 6650 piloted by Captain Chen Yi.
