NORTH PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Georgia Air Patrol says they have found the body of the missing pilot who took off from North County Airport.

He was found in the North Georgia mountains, Lumpkin County. There were no survivors. GAP had been searching the area since he was reported missing Monday. The area is described as being heavily wooded.

The Robinson R44 helicopter was on a flight Monday from North Palm Beach to Blairsville, Georgia heading to Brasstown Valley Resort and Spa.

Georgia Air Patrol were able to find him with volunteers who had radar reports and residents who gave tips.

The pilot of the helicopter is believed to be Adam Chip Reeves of Jupiter. His daughter says he left Monday morning and was the only one in the blue and yellow helicopter.

According to the resort's general manager, Charles Burton, they waited at the helipad with staff and he never arrived. Burton says he is not a regular at the resort and had a reservation for a two night stay.

Georgia Civil Patrol says the search area began in Madison where he was last reported putting gas in the chopper Monday evening around 6:30p.m. The units had been doing an air and ground search since then covering approximately 450 square miles.

The search area was described as mixed terrain, flat areas in Madison all the way to the North Georgia mountains.

Federal Aviation Association Spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says records indicate it was sold to Zulu Heli LLC Operations with a registration address in Wilmington, Delaware address. This does not mean the helicopter was based there.

Investigation will continue to find out the exact cause.
