(CNN) -- A Turkish military jet flying near the border with Syria crashed on Monday, killing the pilot.
The cause of the crash was not immediately clear, according to the semi-official Anadolu news agency.
The pilot sent the message "I'm jumping" shortly before the military lost contact with the jet at about 2:15 p.m., the military said.
Anadolu reported that search and rescue teams found the body of the pilot along with the wreckage in southern Turkey.
Earlier, the news agency quoted the governor of Osmaniye as saying the plane likely went down in that province, near Yarpuz.
Yarpuz is some 22 miles (35 kilometers) northwest of the Syrian border.
