Italian authorities have found the body of an American fighter pilot who crashed his F16 jet off the country’s Adriatic coast.

The pilot had left a US military base north of Venice on a training mission on Monday night.

He was flying with three other aircraft when he reported a problem. A helmet and parachute were recovered off the coast of Pesaro two days later.

“It is with great sadness that we announce that the body of Captain Lucas Gruenther was found in the Adriatic Sea this afternoon,” said a statement from his family, which was released by the US Air Force.
