Small plane that disappeared 23 years ago found crashed in Canada

The wreckage of a small plane that disappeared over the Canadian province of Ontario more than two decades ago has finally been found, provincial police say.

The aircraft was located on Thursday after someone reported finding aircraft wreckage in a remote area near the town of Kapuskasing, which is about 678 kilometers (421 miles) northwest of Toronto. A preliminary investigation has confirmed that the wreckage belongs to a small plane that disappeared in the area more than 23 years ago with two people on board.

The small plane had taken off from Buttonville Municipal Airport near Toronto on April 28, 1992, for a flight to Heart, a town northwest of Kapuskasing. Contact with the plane was lost when it was about 30 nautical miles (55 kilometers) south of Kapuskasing and an extensive search and rescue operation failed to find any trace of the aircraft. The occupants of the aircraft were identified as Paul and Suzanne Joanis.

The cause of the crash is unknown, but will be investigated by the Transportation Safety Board (TSB) of Canada.
