A small airplane disappeared last night from the radar in the Cucuruzeni village, Orhei district. The information was confirmed for Publika TV by the interim head of the General Police Inspectorate, Gheorghe Balan.
According to Balan, the plane would have started from Ukraine. Although almost 24 hours since the incident, the authorities in Chisinau do not know how many people are on board and what is the capacity of the airplane.
Contacted by Publika TV, the Minister of Internal Affairs Andrei Nastase declined to answer the phone and his institution didn't issue any press release until now.
Liliana Puscaşu, General Inspectorate of Emergency Situations, said that at present a group of rescuers and policemen are searching in the village of Chiştelnita, Teleneşti district, near the area where the plane has disappeared.
