As TGP’s Kristinn Taylor reported, the Air Force asked the public for help finding a lost Marine Corps F-35 jet that was last seen over South Carolina Sunday afternoon after the pilot safely ejected. The pilot parachuted into a residential neighborhood where he landed in a backyard and was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

The U.S. Marine Corps has issued a two-day stand-down order for all aviation units after an F-35 went missing after a “mishap”.

A debris field was found in Williamsburg County, South Carolina on Monday.

ABC News reported:
