Loss of Charlie van Goens

Can any-one help with the name, and hopefully the whereabouts, of the intel officer in August 1944?
On the 17th of that month F/Lt. Rijklof "Charlie" van Goens went MIA. This was not registered in the ORB, let alone a cause for the loss, and I can only guess why. Thanks to Peter Graham there is now credible evidence that Van Goens was shot down in the Dover no-fly zone.

Name of intel officer was already dislosed on the website, Lord Guisborough, who held this office throughout the War.

Charlie van Goens apparently took off at 0905 on an 'Anti-Diver Patrol' in the Dover Straits and was reported to have ditched due to fuel shortage. That's the best info' I have.
