A spokesman for the national search and rescue agency said the plane disappeared from the radar around the Bogor area. The plane, with 46 people on board, took off from east Jakarta's Halim Perdanakusuma airport, which is used for some commercial and military flights, at 2pm, he said.

The embassy could not be immediately reached for comment.
