KYZYL, November 7. /TASS/. Two helicopters and five teams are expected to resume search on Friday for a Mi-8 helicopter that went missing in the Russian republic of Tuva, East Siberia, on October 10, the Siberian regional centre of the Russian Emergencies Ministry told TASS.
On Thursday, two helicopters scoured an area of 450 square kilometres from the air while the five teams examined a mountainous and forest area on the ground, but to no avail. Tuva’s head Sholban Kara-ool offered a 500,000-rouble-worth reward /$10,674/ in exchange for finding the missing helicopter.
The radio contact with the helicopter was lost when it was on the way between the communities of Sorug and Kyzyl, located 270 kilometres 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 ill-fated helicopter, which is believed to have crashed because of bad weather conditions.
