Update: 2:55PM HEAVY rain currently over Labasa has forced a group of search teams looking for the missing crew of the Pacific Flying School Cessna 172 back to the operation base at Dogoru Village.

Divisional Police Commander North SSP Verani Nakauyaca said some teams had remained at the top of Delaikoro mountain range while others who have completed their search area have returned to Dogoru.

"We will return to search in new areas as we have completed our search in the prescribed area given to use in the morning but the heavy rain condition has not helped," he said.

SSP Nakauyaca said there were still no sign of the aircraft.

However, he said the search teams would pursue with their search over the mountainous Delaikoro range.
