KATHMANDU- The wreckage of a US military helicopter that went missing on Tuesday in Nepal has been found in mountain terrain and it is not clear if any of the eight people on board survived, a Nepali army general said on Friday.

The Marine Corps UH-1Y Huey was sighted at near the village of Ghorthali at an altitude of 11,200 feet. A team of Nepali ground troops was trying to make its way to the site, Major General Binoj Bashnet told Reuters.

A U.S. military spokeswoman in Kathmandu said she could not confirm the discovery of the helicopter, which went missing in the Dolakha region of eastern Nepal while delivering aid to people hit by the second quake to hit the country in 17 days.
