Where is the F-35 fighter jet?

As per reports, the F-35 fighter jet suffered a crash and the pilot was found on South Kenwood Drive in North Charleston after the pilot ejected safely. After the missing of the advanced jet, an investigation is underway to find out the reason for what forced the pilot to eject. Reportedly, the planes and pilots were part of Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron 501, which is based in Beaufort. Now, the question arises where is the missing F-35 jet?
