Chilean officials say they have located debris believed to be from Hercules C-130, a military cargo plane that went missing on Monday.
They said the wreckage was found floating 30km from where the C-130 Hercules cargo plane with 38 people on board last made contact.
The wreckage was spotted in a body of water known as the Drake Passage.
The plane was en route from Chile’s southern city of Punta Arenas to Antarctica.
Three of the passengers on the plane were Chilean soldiers, two were civilians employed to carry out work on the military base, one was a student and the remaining 15 passengers were members of the air force.
