Brazil Indians find missing plane in Amazon

Brazil's air force says Indians have found a missing military plane in an isolated part of the Amazon rain forest.
Officials say they received reports of survivors but did not say how many of the 11 people aboard may have survived after single-prop C-98 Caravan plane went down.
The air force said in a statement Friday it is sending rescue teams to the remote part of Amazonas state near Brazil's border with Peru where the plane was found by members of the Matis tribe.
The plane disappeared Thursday with four crew and seven members of a government medical team vaccinating people in remote Amazon areas.
It took off from Cruzeiro do Sul in Acre state and was to land two hours later in Tabatinga in Amazonas state.
