The downed plane was eventually located Wednesday evening in a wooded area north of Creekford Road and two kilometres west of Bayridge Drive. Police originally would not release the number of deceased, but on Thursday a police source confirmed that the plane was carrying seven passengers, all of whom died.

The coroner's office and investigators with the Transportation Safety Board were brought in to assess the crash site, and the investigation is still ongoing.

The plane, which the Transportation Safety Board says was a Piper PA-32R registered in the United States, was travelling from Buttonville Airport.
