Myanmar plane missing: 120 people including young families found in the sea

Debris from a missing military plane that disappeared over Myanmar with more than 100 people on board has been found in the sea, according to officials.

The plane went missing at 1.35pm local time as it flew from Myeik to Yangon, the country’s army said.

A major search and rescue effort has been scrambled to search for the plane, which was 20 miles west of Dawei over the Andaman Sea when it lost communication and vanished.

Officials told AFP news agency that debris from the Chinese-built Shaanxi Y-8 aircraft had been recovered from the water following unconfirmed reports it had crashed.

According to local media, planes are used to fly military families based in remote locations to cities once a month.
