The wreckage of the aeroplane was discovered in the water 17 miles from Limon airport, according to Costa Rican police on Saturday. Although two bodies and some luggage have been found, the bodies have not yet been identified.

Public Security Minister Jorge Torres said, “We have retrieved several bits of the jet that were swept in by the tide, as well as two bodies,” according to AFP.

According to Costa Rican authorities, the aircraft was a nine-seat Piaggio P180 Avanti produced in Italy that lost contact with the control tower in Barra de Parismina close to Limon at around six o’clock.
