FORT WORTH, Texas -

A Mansfield couple's getaway trip to the Texas Hill Country for Mother's Day takes a tragic turn.
Donald and Jeanne Frosch's single engine Cessna took off from Spinks Airport in Fort Worth and crashed in Fredericksburg.     

Investigators with the FAA and the NTSB are inspecting the crash site.

The Cessna 182 crashed less than a mile short of the Gillespie County Airport in a pasture.

According to a relative, Donald Frosch and his wife Jeanne were killed in the crash. They leave behind an 8-year-old daughter.

It was scheduled to leave Spinks Airport at 9:30 a.m. Instead it left about an hour and a half later, at around 11:00 a.m.

Department of Public Safety officials said the crash happened just before 1:30 p.m. on Thursday.

Investigators will look to see if weather was a factor in the cause of the crash.

The mother of Jeanne Frosch was not ready to talk on camera. However, she told FOX4 the couple was going down to Fredericksburg to shop and play golf on their yearly trip.

The mother of Jeanne Frosch told FOX4's Brandon Todd the family just asks for prayers right now, especially for their 8-year-old daughter.
