Revelstoke, BC – On September 11, 2018, at approximately 12:00 pm, the Revelstoke RCMP, RCMP Integrated Forensic Identification Section and Parks Canada arrived at the wreckage site of a plane that had been reported missing to the Revelstoke RCMP on November 25, 2017.
The location of the wreckage is along the Trans-Canada Highway in the Glacier National Park of Canada, approximately 60 km east of Revelstoke.
“At this time we can confirm that the plane was the one in question,” says S/Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky with the Revelstoke RCMP. “The plane had significant structural damage, and showed clear signs of a sudden and traumatic impact.”
A survey of the scene was completed to locate as much evidence regarding the incident as possible.
The RCMP can also confirm that remains were located.
The investigation is still in its early stages, says S/Sgt. Grabinsky. We will continue to work with the BC Coroners Service to determine if the remains located are human and, if so, the identities associated.
Neither agency has further information available at this time.
