Sheriff's officials say a private helicopter has crashed into an Arizona river, killing all four people who were onboard.

The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office says the crash in the remote area likely took place Saturday during a flight from Sedona to Scottsdale.

Searchers reached the Verde River crash site on Sunday and found four bodies -- the pilot, 70-year-old Raymond Perry of Phoenix, 68-year-old passenger Karen Stinn of Cave Creek and 63-year-old Mike Dunaway and 64-year-old Linda Dunaway of Glendale.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the wreckage was spotted around 8:45 a.m. Sunday by a private pilot south of Camp Verde.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators are looking at the wreckage to determine what caused the crash.

Camp Verde is about 86 miles north of Phoenix.
