Earlier, the pilot was identified as Lucas Gruenther.
The F-16 was on a night training flight when a NATO base in Italy lost contact with the pilot.
It is believed that the jet went down due to technical malfunction on the way back to the base, according to AFP.
The U.S. military said on January 29 that Italian rescue crews had found and recovered the wreckage of the plane.
