Prime Minister Hun Sen said Tuesday he was traveling personally to where a PMT Air passenger flight had disappeared and was believed to have crashed as weather conditions worsened and hopes of finding survivors dwindled.

Hundreds of military were scouring the jungle about 40 kilometers north of Kampot town Tuesday, so far unsuccessfully, for traces of the wreckage in a search personally led by Cambodian army commander-in-chief Ke Kim Yan and National Disaster Management Committee deputy president Nhim Vanda.

Kampot lies about 150 kilometers south-west of the capital.
