The Navy says it is not identifying a training pilot whose body was found after a plane disappeared off the Texas coast until a search for the other missing pilot is completed.

Coast Guard searchers found the body Friday of one pilot 11 miles northeast of Port Aransas.

Lt. Brett Dawson, spokesman for Chief of Naval Air Training, says the family of the man who was found has been notified. For privacy reasons, the Navy hasn't identified him.

The search continued Saturday for a second pilot who was aboard when the training plane went missing Wednesday.

The Navy had said earlier that 29-year-old Lt. John Joseph Houston, of Houston and 30-year-old Lt. Bret Travis Miller of East Troy, Wis., were on board the Navy T-34C Turbomentor training plane.
