KUCHING: The missing Hornbill Skyways helicopter with four people on board crashed near the remote Sarawak-Kalimantan border in Ulu Balleh, Kapit Division, Sarawak Deputy Commissioner of Police SAC I Abang Wahap Abang Julai said. 

He said the search and rescue team saw smoke coming from the crash site at about 6pm but the fate of the four people on the helicopter was not known. 

The four are pilot Capt Razali Sani, a solider and two surveyors who were on an aerial mapping mission in Long Singut, a Kayan-Kenyah settlement. 

SAC I Abang Wahap said fading light prevented the search and rescue personnel from reaching the crash site.
