Small plane with 2 aboard goes missing in Guyana

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) -- Authorities in Guyana are searching for a small cargo plane that vanished with two people aboard while flying over remote jungles in the South American country.

Guyana's civil aviation department says the twin-engine, 10-seat Britten-Norman Islander aircraft went missing on Sunday.

The two men on board -- a pilot and the cargo plane's loader -- both were identified as Guyanese. They had been delivering fuel and other cargo for mining camps in southwestern Guyana.

Rescuers had yet to find any sign of a fire or wreckage.

Earlier this year, another small plane disappeared while bringing supplies to miners in the country's dense western jungles.
