The Associated Press reports that Mexican officials are still looking for the plane, despite an earlier report that those aboard had died.

All four people on board a plane that crashed in Mexico after taking off from Texas are dead, the International Boundary and Water Commission said Wednesday.

The dead included the leaders of its U.S. and Mexican branches. The agency maintains the border between the two countries.

The plane had been missing since Monday, when it took off from El Paso to check out flooding on the Rio Grande.

The U.S. Border Patrol says it found the plane’s wreckage Wednesday in a rugged section of the Sierra Madre Mountains in Mexico, about 20 miles northwest of Presidio.
