Members on a B.C. Ambulance helicopter have found the wreckage of a small plane carrying two people from November

REVELSTOKE (NEWS 1130) – It appears there’s a sad ending to the disappearance of two people from Alberta who vanished on a flight from Penticton to Edmonton late last year.

Police in Revelstoke say the wreckage of the small plane has been found in a remote area.

“I know that the family had done extensive efforts as well to try and locate the plane, as well as the Revelstoke RCMP,” RCMP Constable Spencer Lainchbury

The Mooney M20D went down Nov. 25, 2017 with pilot Dominique Neron and his girlfriend Ashley Bourgeault on board.

It’s unclear if their bodies have been found at the crash scene, but police say the BC Coroners Service has been called in.



The plane was found on Monday, but not by search crews.

“The wreckage was found just east of Revelstoke in Glacier National Park by a B.C. Ambulance helicopter that was flying to Kamloops from Golden,” Cst. Lainchbury says.

The plane was white and burgundy, with a tail marker matching that of the plane that went down. The RCMP is thanking the helicopter crew members for watchful eyes in locating the plane, and bringing closure to the victim’s families.

Back in December, Neron’s sister Tammy set up a GoFundMe page to help fund the search efforts.
