The remains of two people and the wreckage of a light aircraft which went missing in Argyll in western Scotland have been found by search teams.

The plane lost radar contact at around 1.50pm on Saturday over Glen Kinglass, leading to a multi-agency response involving the police, ambulance service and the coastguard.

Police Scotland confirmed that the wreckage was found on the northern aspect of the Glen Kinglass area at 8pm.

The bodies of the two unidentified persons were discovered on board the wreckage of the wreckage of the Piper PA-28 plane.

Chief Inspector Fergus Byrne said: "Police Scotland has been working with partner agencies throughout the day to locate the aircraft and our thoughts are with the families of the victims.

"Enquiries are continuing to establish the exact circumstances and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal."

The plane is believed to have been travelling from Dundee to but failed to arrive on the isle of Tiree, which is located in the most westerly island in the Inner Hebrides.

The Tiree airport website said yesterday that strong winds were causing disruption, according to the Scotland's Daily Record.

Initially, there had been a report about a plane disappearing behind the hills over the loch and a search had been carried out by a Lifeboat.

A spokesman for Oban Lifeboat Station, said: "Someone made the report and we have been searching the Loch but nothing has been found and the boat is now returning."

In 2009, an RAF F3 Tornado jet crashed near the Rest and Be Thankful tourist spot in, Argyll. The pilot and navigator were killed crashed into a hillside in a location one hour's drive away from yesterday's crash.
