A helicopter crash claimed the lives of two newlyweds, including a Bellville native, Saturday.
Will Byler of Bellville and his wife, Bailee Ackerman Byler, a native of Orangefield, were killed when the helicopter departing their wedding crashed north of Uvalde.
Uvalde Police confirmed they received a call from an aviation monitoring center around midnight Saturday notifying them of a possible down aircraft north of Uvalde County.
Several agencies aided police in their search for the aircraft, which police say was found shortly after sunrise Sunday morning.
Both Will and Bailee Byler were members of the rodeo team at Sam Houston State, where they were seniors.
DPS and the Federal Aviation Administration continue to investigate the crash scene.
