The crew of a French fighter jet that crashed Wednesday has been found dead, the country's air force has confirmed.

A search was launched for Captain Baptiste ChiriƩ and Lieutenant Audrey Michelon after debris from their Dassault Mirage 2000D was found in the mountainous Jura region of eastern France.
The crew were on a routine low-altitude training flight when radar contact was lost on the morning of January 9, the French air force said in a statement. The jet, which belonged to the Nancy-Ochey Air Base, was flying over the mountainous region between the Doubs and Jura areas.
