Reports: Plane crashes in Amazon
BRASILIA, Brazil -- Brazil's Globo television network is reporting that a plane carrying 30 passengers and three crew has crashed in the Amazon jungle.
Reports say the Rico Linhas Aereas flight crashed as it prepared to land at Manaus airport.
Local emergency services found the wreckage of the Embraer 120 Brasilia aircraft after a six-hour search in the tropical jungle near the Rio Negro River, a Rico Linhas spokeswoman told Reuters news agency.
"We know nothing yet on casualties, we're waiting," the airline spokeswoman added.
Emergency services also could give no reports on casualties or survivors.
The flight was en route to Manaus from Sao Paulo de Olivenca on the western edge of the Amazonas state, with stops in Tabatinga and Tefe, officials said.
