Kriegsberichter Loss in 1941

I know this is a long shot and I have little information but here we go ,
on 22 November 1941 the body of a German airman was washed ashore on the south east coast of Ireland . His rank appeared to be that of a Lt. and on his tunic was the cufftitle " Kriegsberichter Der Luftwaffe " . From Irish records his unit is down as " L.W. Baukomp" and his number is 1/307/111 and the number 69 under the underlined . Sadly his body was in a bad condition and he was in the water for some months , does anybody have any losses for Kriegsberichters during this period ?
Thanks.

He was Sdfhr. Karl Ehrmann from He 111 H-5 of 9./KG 40, which was missing on 20 Oct 1941 at the west coast of England.

Matti, it is a pleasure to be able for once to be of some assistance.
There were three Heinkels operating near the Scillies in the evening and I was hoping that the time of the Heinkel (identified) could be confirmed if it was morning or evening.
