A small sports plane carrying Dutch nationals crashed in Croatia on Saturday afternoon. Croatian media reported this. The Dutch Foreign Ministry cannot confirm whether the Dutch were on board the crashed plane.

The Croatian news agency Hina reported that three Dutch nationals were on board the plane that crashed on Mount Kapili in Lika Sinj County. The plane was on its way from the Slovenian city of Maribor to the city of Pula in southern Croatia.

The plane disappeared from radar around 12:30 p.m., according to the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service, HGSS. With more than 120 people, a drone and a helicopter, a search was made for the remains of the plane in the wooded area. The device was found just after 7:15 p.m. on Saturday.
