Missing plane in Siberia found, survivors seen: officials

A plane carrying 17 people that went missing on Friday in the Siberian region of Tomsk has been found and survivors have been spotted, Russian officials said.

“The site of the plane’s hard landing was discovered. They see living people,” Russia’s Emergencies Ministry said in a statement.

It said the plane made a forced landing after one of its two engines failed.

The An-28 is a small short-range, Soviet-designed turboprop used by many small carriers across Russia and some other countries.

The plane belongs to the local Sila airline and was flying from the town of Kedrovoye to the city of Tomsk.
