Indonesia’s search for dozens of victims from last month’s crash of an passenger jet could end within days if no more bodies are found, a senior government official said on Wednesday.
The aircraft vanished from radar screens in bad weather over the December 28, less than half-way into a two-hour flight from Surabaya, , Indonesia’s second-biggest city, to Singapore and crashed into the Java sea. All 162 people on board were killed.
On Tuesday, the military withdrew from the search and apologized to the victims’ family for not being able to find any more bodies.
The Cockpit Voice recorder and the Flight data recorder has been recovered from the the sea bed and is being investigated to find out the actual reason behind the crash.
Investigators have ruled out any foul play in the air crash.
