Territory of Belfort. Police searching for tourist plane reported in distress

A helicopter from the Colmar gendarmerie air detachment circled above part of the Belfort Territory this Friday. He was mobilized to find a tourist plane, or at least locate it.

These searches followed the triggering of a distress beacon coming from a device he was in the Fontaine sector at midday.

The alert was quickly relayed and land and air resources were deployed. Police also went up to Ballon d’Alsace to find out if hikers or paragliders had seen a plane.

Further searches were undertaken but failed to find plane debris or locate a crash-landed aircraft.

The Territory gendarmerie group recalled, at the end of the afternoon, that the main difficulty of this research comes from the area to be covered which extends from the Territoire de Belfort, to Doubs, via Haute-Saône and the Swiss. Maybe they won’t give anything? But the military’s objective is to remove doubt.
