A team searching for Malawian Vice President Saulos Chilima's missing plane has found the wreckage of an aircraft in thick forest.

An airplane carrying Malawi's Vice President Saulos Klaus Chilima appears has been found in the country's Chikangawa Forest on Tuesday.

Malawi's President Lazarus Chakwera made the announcement during a televised address.

Malawian rescuers had combed the forest in the hunt for the missing plane, with the United States and neighboring African nations sending search aircraft.

The military plane carrying 51-year-old Chilima and nine others disappeared on Monday after its crew was told not to land in the northern city of Mzuzu due to bad weather.
