KINGSTON, Jamaica, Feb 04 2016 – Jamaican rescue teams are searching for an aircraft that reportedly crashed off the coast of St. Elizabeth late Wednesday.
The Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) said while there is still no physical evidence that an aircraft crashed off the coast the search was continuing based on reports from civilians that they spotted the plane before it disappeared.
“A number of civilians from the area called the police first to say they saw the crash and we through the network we had been alerted to it,” the JDF’s civil-military cooperation officer, Major Basil Jarrett told a local radio station.
He said he could not say how long the search would continue.
In 2014, a plane crashed off the coast of Portland, killing two people.
