September 12, 2016

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) — The bodies of two missing men have been found near their vehicle that apparently plunged 500 feet off a mountain road above Santa Barbara.

The Santa Maria Times reports (http://bit.ly/2cxcu0j) a hang glider spotted the car on Sunday and alerted authorities.

Santa Barbara County Fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni said the vehicle matched the description of a car carrying two men who were reported missing from Lompoc on Wednesday.

He said both men, who were in their 20s, had been ejected from the vehicle.

Their names have not been released.
