The Apache crew was conducting a nighttime training flight when it was reported missing about 10 p.m. A ground and air search was conducted Thursday night, but the aircraft was not found until Friday morning about 6:20 a.m.
Identities of the pilots are being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
