The plane that went missing on Jamaica’s North Coast with three people on board has been found.
The five-seater Cessna aircraft was found broken into several piece. There were no survivors among the three people – two pilots and a mechanic — who were on board.
The plane was found about 5 o’clock this afternoon (Friday) about 24 hours after it went off radar, near Duncans, Trelawny. It left Sangster International Airport, St James for Tinson Pen aerodrome, Kingston, Thursday at 4:36.
The Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) commenced a search yesterday evening but had to call it off because of poor weather.
They recommenced the search this morning about 5:30, with a plane and two helicopters.
Close to 5 o’clock they found the plane broken into several pieces about two miles south of Duncans. Major Basil Jarrett Communications spokesman for the JDF said the remains of the three were found. He said the full scale investigations would now commence to establish what happened.
