Martin Arias, the deputy minister of public security, told Agence France-Presse (AFP) that Costa Rican police discovered Saturday what may be the wreckage of an airplane carrying five Germans who were involved in an accident but fled Mexico without reporting any survivors or bodies found.

Businessman Rainer Schaller, his wife Christiane Schikorsky, their sons Aaron Schaller and Finja Schikorsky, and a Swiss pilot with the last name Lips were all aboard the aircraft.

The private aircraft, a jet, reportedly took off from a local terminal after leaving the Mexican state of Chiapas, according to the Costa Rican media.

Following the disappearance notice, the search for the jet started. The night and severe weather, however, caused it to be suspended after a few hours, according to Torres.

Arias said that the rescue effort was resumed on Saturday at 05:00 local time (11:00 GMT). He added that, among other organizations, these included planes from the Air Surveillance Service and vessels from the National Coast Guard.

Firefighters and rescuers from the Costa Rican Red Cross have a command post set up at the Limon airport, according to Arias.

You can see pieces of the airplane’s wings and other aircraft debris in the now-viral footage. A seat, too, and a bag that’s empty.
