Small plane with 2 aboard goes missing in Guyana
GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) — Authorities in Guyana are searching for a small cargo plane that vanished with two people aboard while flying over remote jungles in the South American country.
Guyana’s civil aviation department says the twin-engine, 10-seat Britten-Norman Islander aircraft went missing on Sunday.
The two men on board — a pilot and the cargo plane’s loader — both were identified as Guyanese. They had been delivering fuel and other cargo for mining camps in southwestern Guyana.
Rescuers had yet to find any sign of a fire or wreckage.
Earlier this year, another small plane disappeared while bringing supplies to miners in the country’s dense western jungles.
