Two pilots were found dead on Wednesday, a day after their helicopter went missing in south China.

Their bodies were found in the wreckage of the crashed helicopter that was found 24 hours later after it was reported missing in south China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

The helicopter belonged to a local company that organised helicopter tours.

Guilin General Aviation Company said the helicopter took off from Guilin on Tuesday and was headed to Beihai in Guangxi.

It lost contact with the air traffic controller an hour after it took off, over Guilin’s Yongfu County.

The wreckage and the pilots’ bodies were discovered in the mountainous area of Yongfu, according to the company.
