Bodies found after gyrocopter crashes

THE bodies of two men have been found in Victoria's Kinglake National Park following a gyrocopter crash at the weekend.

Searchers had been scouring the park for the men, who failed to return on Saturday, (Dec 21) from what was to be a 15-minute flight north-east of Melbourne.

A Victoria Police spokesman said on Sunday (Dec 22) the bodies had been located in the national park.

The gyrocopter took off from a conference centre on the Melba Highway at Dixons Creek about 5.20pm.

Emergency services were notified when the men failed to return to the centre as planned.

An overnight search by Victoria Police search and rescue crews continued into Sunday morning with the help of the SES and police air wing.

Victorian Police will prepare a report for the coroner.
