The bodies of two men have been found in Victoria’s Kinglake National Park following a gyrocopter crash.

Searchers had been scouring the park for the men, who failed to return from what was to be a 15-minute flight northeast of Melbourne on Saturday.

A Victoria Police spokesman said on Sunday the bodies had been found in the national park.

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

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.

Police will prepare a report for the coroner.
