Official update on the plane that went missing on Tuesday

Findings on the missing plane

The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) Assistant Director in charge of Mountain Areas Simon Gitau told the Nation that a phone signal of one of the occupants had been detected in the Aberdares in Nyandarua County.

According to Mr. Gitau, the Wednesday morning search commenced in the Kinangopo area at 4 am where the phone signal was located.

However, poor visibility is still a hindrance in the rescue operations.

Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) Director-General Gilbert Kibe on Tuesday evening confirmed that the flight registration number 5Y CAC lost contact with the control at 5 PM.

Eight passengers and two crew members were on board when the plane operated by East African Safari Air Express went off the radar.

Relatives and next of kin of those on board have been directed to convene at Weston Hotel, Nairobi, where further update will be issued.
