Plane en route to SA missing in Mozambique

Maputo - The hunt was on Wednesday for a small aircraft that was last heard of over Mozambique's remote northwest, with fears growing about the fate of its occupants.

The craft - reported to be a small Baron 55 with five people on board- was last heard of travelling in Mozambique's vast province of Tete en route to Lanseria airport, north of Johannesburg, the Mozambique Civil Aviation Agency said.

The plane did not send out a distress signal and no sign of its wreckage has been found.
