Fate of Adam Air Passengers Still Unknown

There are conflicting reports regarding the wreckage of an Indonesian jetliner that disappeared late Monday. A spokesperson for Adam Air on Tuesday said the remains of local carrier Adam Air were found near the coastal village of Polewali, and added that 90 people were killed and 12 survived the crash, which was blamed on bad weather conditions. However, The Associated Press later that day said rescuers are still trying to locate the survivors and the missing jet, which took flight in Jakarta and stopped over in Surabaya. The AP report said Transport Minister Hatta Radjasa blamed villagers for rumors the wreckage was located. The United States Embassy said three Americans were on board.
