Rescuers have found the wreckage of a small aircraft that crashed in the mountains of northwestern Croatia on Saturday (20 May), but they could not confirm if there were any crew members, according to the HINA news agency.

A 120-strong team of rescuers searched in the forest of Lika Senj for the "Cirrus 20," an aircraft that had gone off radar during a flight between the Slovenian city of Maribor and the Adriatic City of Pula.

Local media reported that army helicopters and drones had been sent to search an area suspected of having mines from the 1990s war.

Rescuers did not know the number of passengers on board the Dutch registered aircraft.
