The Brazilian-registered Cessna 208 was reported missing at 9:44 a.m., shortly after it took off from Alfonso Bonilla Aragon airport in the town of Palmira, which serves Cali, the provincial capital, Civil Aviation officials told EFE.

The aircraft, which was engaged in aerial photography work, went off radar screens while it was flying between the village of Bitaco and the town of La Cumbre in the Yumbo municipality.

The plane belonged to Brazil’s Microsurvey company, which specializes in geophysical consulting work for the mining and natural gas industries and is also active in the field of civil engineering.
