A passenger plane carrying 35 people crashed Saturday during a local flight in the mid-Atlantic Azores Islands. There was no word on survivors. Rescue teams were on their way, officials said.

The Portuguese military located the wreckage of the SATA plane, which was reported missing between Faial Island and Sao Miguel Island 30 minutes after it took off from Sao Miguel's Ponta Delgada, bound for Faial, according to Portuguese state-run RTP television.Witnesses said they saw the Azorean airline aircraft go down on the island of Sao Jorge, reported Portugal's TSF radio."The impact was seen by various local residents," said Jose Joaquim, head of the Azores Islands' civil protection agency. "At this moment, we still have not reached the site."The remote chain of islands is located 1,600 kilometers (1,000 miles) from mainland Portugal.

There were 31 passengers and four crew members on board the British-built, twin-engine plane, which lost contact with air traffic controllers 10 minutes before it was to land, news reports said.The Ponta Delgada control tower never received an emergency call from the plane. The cause of the crash was not immediately known, and there were conflicting reports about the weather in the area.

The aircraft had been in service between the islands for 15 years, reported the Portuguese news agency Lusa.
