A Scottsdale, Ariz. attorney and his family — a wife and two daughters — died after their plane, crashed on Monday.

The craft was piloted by Eric Falbe, 44, an Arizona-based lawyer. His wife, Carrie Falbe, 31, and the pilot’s two daughters from a previous marriage, Victoria, 14, and Skylar, 12, also perished.

Falbe’s plane was a Cessna 210, which crashed in a wooded area northwest of Payson, Ariz. USA Today reports.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety’s Ranger helicopter and the Air Force Civil Air Patrol pinged a cellphone and ultimately located the plane. The helicopter search began at around 2 a.m. and the downed plane was discovered at 4:50 a.m.

Eric Falbe, 44, his wife Carrie, 34, and his two daughters from a previous marriage, 14-year-old Victoria and 12-year-old Skylar, were found in a plane wreckage in Arizona on Jan. 3, 2016.

The plane crashed under unknown circumstances, but it will be investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board, the FAA and the Sheriff’s Office.

Radar indicates that it ascended in Scottsdale and descended rapidly near Payson.

Falbe’s law partner, Michael Maleson, confirmed that the attorney was aboard the plane, and told USA Today, “Beyond Eric’s professional accomplishments, Eric and Carrie will be remembered for their passion for life and warmth toward others.”
