An excursion tourist plane with six people in it disappeared over Alaska, according to the local newspaper Alaska Public Media.
Eli Teller, the coordinator of search and rescue operations of the Coast Guard sector of the city of Juneau in the west of the state, said that the emergency signal was received at 11.20 local time from the area of the Foggy Fjords National Reserve.
According to the coast guard of the region, distress signals are coming from a height of about 400 meters, but the search operation was postponed.
вЂњWe have a Coast Guard helicopter and a Temsco helicopter. But because of the weather, they can not climb to the desired height, вЂњ said the head of the volunteer rescue team, Jerry Kieffer.
