MOSCOW, October 27. /TASS/. Search for a Mi-8 helicopter that went missing in the republic of Tyva, East Siberia, on October 10, continues on Monday, a spokesman for the republic’s crisis management center told TASS.
Three aircraft take part in the search operation covering an area of almost 70,000 square kilometers, Dmitry Kryzh said.
Eleven teams are involved in search on the ground. In the past 16 days, they have examined an area of almost 50,000 square kilometers, questioning more than 600 local residents, but to no avail.
The radio contact with the helicopter was lost when it was on the way between the communities of Sorug and Kyzyl, located 270 kilometers away from each other. Specialists on board the helicopter were making aerial survey of snow levels. According to updated reports, there were 14 people on board the helicopter, which is believed to have crashed because of bad weather conditions.
An emergency mode is still in place in the republic.
