Authorities in Costa Rica are surveying wreckage from a plane crash after a small aircraft that was believed to be carrying five German nationals, including international fitness mogul Rainer Schaller, went missing on Friday.

A twin-engine turboprop plan was found on Saturday, according to officials.

The charter plane passenger list included Mr Schaller, the founder of an international chair of fitness centres, including McFit, John Reed and Gold’s Gym. Five other German nationals and a Swiss pilot were also believed to be on board. All are feared dead.

Costa Rica security minister Martin Arias said no bodies have been recovered from the site of the wreckage, roughly 17 miles (28 kilometers) from the coast of the Limon airport.
