JAKARTA, April 13 (Xinhua) -- Indonesia's national search and rescue office said on Thursday that a cargo plane going missing on Wednesday had crashed into a mountain in Papua province.
A signal from the cargo plane had been detected and the crashed plane was located in the deep forest in remote Oksibil, spokesman of the national search and rescue office named only Marsudi told Xinhua by phone.
"The plane collided with a mountain in the deep forest area in Oksibbil," he said.
Rescuers flying there could not reach the area partly due to the poor weather condition, said Marsudi.
The spokesman confirmed that only a pilot was aboard the cargo plane.
The cargo plane was en route from Wajo to Sentani when the crash occurred, the spokesman said.
