MANILA, Philippines - Deep-sea divers recovered Sunday afternoon what appeared to be the "paper flight plan" of the ill-fated Piper Seneca plane, which Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo, who remains missing up to this time, boarded.
DoTC Secretary Mar Roxas tweeted past 4 p.m. a photo of the paper flight plan that was recovered by divers at 100 feet.
Aside from the flight plan, Roxas said divers also discovered "tracks" on the seabed which is now being checked by the divers.
Earlier, sonars detected a "disturbance" on the sea floor indicating a possible trace of the missing plane.
"Divers being deployed to investigate. Choppers scouring coast off Ticao Island and PAF (Philippine Air Force) choppers doing Masbate south, southeast coast," Roxas tweeted.
He said that aside from the flight plan, the only trace of the plane recovered so far was its right wing.
Meanwhile, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) said search operations for Robredo and the two pilots will continue despite tropical depression "Igme" affecting the seaboards of Luzon.
