After an all night search, a father and his ten year old son missing aboard a Aveko VL-3 Evolution ultralight were found in a marshland near the Lukna river in Paluknys, Lithuania near a wooded area.

The plane went missing after dusk on April 19th and was not found until the 20th. Border guards and reconnaissance helicopters engaged in the search. The rescuers were unable to provide assistance to the victims. Police, aviation, safety experts, and disaster site rescue teams assisted in the search and recovery.

Investigators suggest there was an engine failure and spin, leading to the accident, which occurred along the route where the craft would have turned.

Dalius Aleksandravi?ius was a CEO, a graduate of Stockholm School of Economics and used to work for Met Life.
