Beechcraft V35B Bonanza, N3804X

A small American plane that went missing Monday near Senneterre has been found. The pilot, who was the only person on board, was found dead amid plane wreckage in dense forest in northwestern Quebec.

A Canadian armed forces helicopter sent to search for the Beechcraft V35B Bonanza found it around 7 p.m. Friday in Quebec’s Val d’Or region, about 525 kilometres northwest of Montreal.

Capt. Trevor Reid says the air force, provincial police and the Transportation Safety Board of Canada are investigating.

“It was found in very austere terrain, dense forest and large trees,” he said. “The pilot was found with no vital signs.”

About 100 rescuers from the RCAF, Quebec’s provincial police and other agencies participated in the search operation.

“We hope that this discovery helps the family with its grief and our thoughts are with them during this difficult time,” chief of operations John Landry said in a statement.

Six armed forces aircraft, a Coast Guard helicopter, a Sûreté du Québec helicopter and six Quebec rescue aircraft assisted in the search, as did planes from the Civil Air Search and Rescue Association flown by volunteers.

The plane left an airport in Wisconsin, flying toward Danbury, Connecticut. The pilot deviated from his flight plan toward the north because of weather.

“We know he turned north to avoid a very large storm,” Reid said Saturday. “What remains unknown and what is now part of the investigation … is how he came to be that far north.”

Air traffic control lost contact north of Senneterre, in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region.

The flightradar24.com website, which tracks active flights, indicates the plane, with callsign N3804X, took off at 2:55 p.m. Monday from Wittman Regional Airport near Oshkosh, northwest of Milwaukee. It proceeded northeast over Lake Michigan and Lake Huron, passed between Malartic and Val-d’Or and flew north to Senneterre before turning northwest.

The air force did not identify the pilot.

CHARLESTOWN, Rhode Island (WJAR) — A seaplane that crashed in Watchaug Pond in Charlestown Saturday night has been pulled from the water.

Neither were injured in the crash.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.
