YAOUNDE, Cameroon — A plane carrying the chairman, chief executive officer and top executives of an Australian mining firm disappeared into the jungle as it flew from Cameroon to Republic of Congo and rescue teams were searching Sunday for the aircraft.

The aircraft, chartered by Australian company Sundance Resources Ltd., was carrying nine passengers on Saturday, including six executives, from Yaounde to Yangadou in the neighboring Republic of Congo where the company has a mine, according to a statement released Sunday by Sundance Resources Ltd.

A Cameroon official for the company said the plane went missing as it flew to its first stop in Mbalam, another of the firm's mining sites located in Cameroon's eastern region.
