Panama City : A small plane with four people aboard was reported missing in western Panama, according to the local civil aviation authority, Spain’s EFE news agency reported Tuesday.
The Cessna 172 aircraft, piloted by a Panamanian, disappeared Sunday between Isla Seca in the Pacific and Volcan in the western province of Chiriqui, said Victor de la Hoz, spokesman for Panama’s Civil Aviation Authority.
The passengers were three US citizens, a man and his two children, who were travelling to Volcan, which is located in a forested and inaccessible area.
A Civil Aviation Authority plane and five private aircraft plan to resume the search for the missing plane Monday. The search operation had to be called off Sunday in bad weather.
