Rescuers found the wreckage of the missing passenger plane in Nepal on Monday, a military official said, without giving details of the 22 people, including two Germans, who were on board.
A rescue team has located the wreckage of the plane and shared a photo. Other teams are going there so we can get more details, said Nepalese Army spokesman Narayan Silwal. 
A photo shared by Silwal on Twitter shows plane debris scattered on the side of a mountain.
The registration number 9N-AET is clearly visible on what appeared to be a piece of wing. 
Search operations resumed Monday morning after being interrupted at nightfall on Sunday. 
The aircraft was carrying 19 passengers - including two Germans, four Indians and ten Nepalese - and three crew members.
Mr. Silwal said that the crash site was in an area called Sanosware, in Thasang, Mustang region. 
The twin-engine Twin Otter had taken off from the city of Pokhara (west-central Nepal) at 09:55 before losing radio contact.
Jomsom, known as a starting point for trekkers in the Himalayas, is a 20-minute flight from Pokhara, the country's second largest city, 200 km west of the capital Kathmandu.
Rescuers explored, without success, throughout the day on Sunday this mountainous region very difficult to access in western Nepal, on foot and by helicopter.
Tara Air is a subsidiary of Yeti Airlines, a private domestic airline that serves many remote areas of Nepal.
