Three bodies have been found at the site of a plane crash near the mouth of the Pickerel River.

A Piper airplane went missing south of Sudbury Wednesday morning.

Some parts were found at the Sudbury airport, and the plane itself was found in a heavily wooded area only accessible by helicopter.

The OPP says the plane had engine problems, and lost radio contact during an emergency landing.

No names of the victims have been released yet.
