Initial attempts to launch an aerial search of the area were hampered by fog. A Coast Guard Sikorsky S-61N helicopter, G-BIMU, was dispatched and arrived over the area at about 14:00.
The helicopter was later joined by a Coast Guard Dornier Do-228, PH-CGN.
The Do-228 located the wreckage on the ground at about 16:20 LT.
All four occupants were seriously injured and taken to hospital.
Sadly the pilot died of his injuries at 14 June 2012.
