Confusion in Colombia over claim missing children found after Amazon crash

There is confusion over whether four children have been found alive in Amazon rainforest, more than two weeks after a plane crash in Colombia. More than 100 soldiers have been searching with sniffer dogs since the plane vanished on 1 May. Announcing the missing children had been found, Mr Petro wrote on Twitter: "After arduous searching by our military, we have found alive the four children who went missing after a plane crash in Guaviare. A joy for the country." The bodies of the pilot and two adults were found earlier in the week. Colombian authorities believe the four missing children were wandering through the rainforest since the plane went down in the southern region. Earlier in the week, soldiers found the wreckage of the aircraft, nose buried in the jungle floor, and the bodies of the three dead. One of the dead adults, Ranoque Mucutuy, was the mother of the four children.
