Nothing more was heard from the plane. A rescue mission was launched, but the plane was not located. Also, an ELT signal was not received. By March 2007 the plane still had not been found.
The airplane was reportedly operating on behalf of the DRC company Stellavia. Press reported indicate that the company Pass Word, of which the pilot was director, had leased the airplane from Blue Nile Limited.
