June 5th,2022 small plane lost in port of Rotterdam waters
Small plane on flight plan from eastern Germany en route to France with 2 PoB. Probably crashed as some debris was found. Both persons still missing by June 6th.

The registration number was visible on part of the debris.
Visibility in the area was bad with rain and low cloud.
The Pinksteren holidays would significantly reduce the number of potential witnesses in the extensive industrial area.

Considering the Airspace and the apparent routing curious why (so far) ATC has not been aware of any issues.

Informal sources have it as a Spanish registered VLA.

Pretty sure it's the registration mentionned by ASN, as it's (almost) confirmed by this picture in a local newspaper
