A small plane, an INPAER Explorer#PR-ZAL with three aboard was en route from Campos dos Amarais, Campinas to London but disappeared from radar while talking to ATC in Pirassununga Brazil at about ten on January 23rd. The experimental plane was registered but not certified, and barred from flying over populated areas.

The Brazilian Air Force, Botucatu and São Manuel police forces were searching with a C-105 Amazonas, a H1 and an Eagle Helicopter, and found the remains of the passengers in dense forest, in a rugged area near Monte Alegre.

The Squad of Campo Grande rescue team is on the scene.

Locals who heard the failing engine, a roar and saw a flash of light in the woods notified authorities.

The remains have been identified as:
-Alderman and Deputy Mayor of Suzano (SP) Jessé Almeida,
-Edson Geraldino, identified as owner of the plane.

The identity of the third party, Rubens Geraldino, has not been confirmed by the family. The passengers (uncle and nephew) were from Mogi das Cruzes, SP, Brazil.
