Nairobi - A wildlife official says three Swiss nationals have been found dead along with the wreckage of their plane that went missing in Kenya a few days ago.

Paul Mbugua, the spokesperson for the Kenya Wildlife Service, said a helicopter pilot involved in the search and rescue operation spotted the wreckage on one of the peaks of the Aberdares mountain range in central Kenya.
