Disappeared. The aircraft was last seen 12 December 1953 at Araruama, Saquarena and Maricá between 16:00 and 17:00 hours, low flying in bad weather.
The aircraft was reportedly located 40 km east of São Paulo, Brazil near Mogi das Cruzes. This seems unlikely since this would be approx. 300 km to the west of the intended destination of Rio de Janeiro.
