Wreckage from a Marine Corps F-35 fighter jet missing since its pilot ejected over South Carolina has been found, hours after the military asked the public for help locating the plane.

Joint Base Charleston had asked the public on Monday to call the base if they have ‘any information that may help our recovery teams locate the F-35,’ which is worth $80 million.

The pilot ejected and parachuted safely into a residential area in North Charleston around 2pm Sunday.

The pilot’s name has not been released, but he is reportedly in stable condition after being taken to a hospital.

According to an email seen by ABC News, all similar jets have been grounded pending a two-day discussion about safety measures and procedures.

Joint Base Charleston announced Monday evening:

Personnel from Joint Base Charleston and @MCASBeaufortSC, in close coordination with local authorities, have located a debris field in Williamsburg County. The debris was discovered two hours northeast of JB Charleston.

We would like to thank all of our mission partners, as well as local, county, and state authorities, for their dedication and support throughout the search and as we transition to the recovery phase.

Teams from JB Charleston, @MCASBeaufortSC, the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing out of MCAS Cherry Point, Navy Region Southeast, the FAA, the Civil Air Patrol, as well as local, county, and state law enforcement across South Carolina have been working together to locate the U.S. Marine Corps F-35B.

Members of the community should avoid the area as the recovery team secures the debris field. We are transferring incident command to the USMC this evening, as they begin the recovery process.

The jet crashed on Sunday after the pilot ejected himself to safety due to an unknown problem, but authorities then couldn’t find the jet.

Rep. Nancy Mace tweeted Sunday evening, “How in the hell do you lose an F-35? How is there not a tracking device and we’re asking the public to what, find a jet and turn it in?”
