Efforts to locate the crew and any passengers was negative. The plane was empty of any possible illegal drugs or money.

Authorities say evidence indicates the plane was abandoned only hours before its finding.

The aircraft has a Colombian flag on one of its sides and the tail number HK5054G, although authorities are in the process of verifying if it is real. Drug traffickers typically misidentify such aircraft.

The week before last, authorities in the south zone confiscated another abandoned small plane.

On January 8, in the Lomas de Sierpe in Cariari de Pococí, another small plane linked to drug trafficking crashed.

On February 12 in the same area, authorities intercepted another aircraft in which three Mexicans transported ¢165 million colones.
