Family members say a Texas couple was killed in a helicopter crash just hours after they were married. "We ask that you keep the Byler and Ackerman families in your thoughts and prayers", the Houstonian posted on Facebook on Sunday night.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the Bell 206B went down about 15 miles northwest of Uvalde, about 100 miles west of San Antonio.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash, but the cause is not yet known.

The two were students at Sam Houston State University, according to the student newspaper, which wrote about their deaths on Facebook.

The pilot, named by ABC13 as Vietnam veteran Gerald Green Lawrence, was also killed.

The crash took place in Uvalde, Texas, and the Uvalde Police received a call from an aviation monitoring center at approximately midnight Saturday of a possible downed aircraft. Their engagement photos show a giddy couple, with Will in a cowboy hat and Bailee showing off her ring.

"[Bailee] was full of life, beautiful, and could light up a room with her smile", Ellis told MySanAntonio.com in an email.

Elliss said Ackerman was set to graduate in December and Will in May. They responded with several other agencies and were able to locate the helicopter around daybreak, according to the post.

"I love them both so dearly and they will always be so special to me", Ellis said.
