Presumably, they were tracking the plane's transponder, which would obviously be turned off in a real combat situation, where stealth was necessary.

Wait, hold on a sec. First of all, I'm hopeful for the pilot's safe rescue. Secondly, the article mentions that they were tracking the aircraft on radar. Er, come again? The F-22 is the most stealthy aircraft publically known to exist, yet radar tracking for this aircraft was mentioned so casually as to indicate that it's even routine.

Not to drag this so far off-topic, but that's a pretty interesting bit of information.
