Indonesia’s National Search and Rescue Agency team is continuing a search operation for the 62 people aboard Sriwijaya Air Flight 182, which crashed into the ocean after takeoff last Saturday.
The Boeing 737-500 plane was heading from Jakarta to the city of Pontianak when it lost contact at 2:40 p.m. local time, 11 nautical miles north of Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.
According to Indonesia’s minister of transportation, there were 50 passengers on board (43 adults and 7 children) as well as 12 crew members.
On Sunday, family members gathered at a victim identification center in Jakarta and at a crisis center in Pontianak, where they waited for any news of their loved ones.
Here’s what we know about the victims so far.
A pregnant mother
Ratih Windania, who was four months pregnant, was visiting family members in Jakarta with her 2-year-old daughter, Yumna; her 8-year-old nephew, Athar Rizki Riawan; uncle Tony Ismail and aunt Rachmawati.
In a story posted to Windania’s Instagram account before departing from Jakarta airport on Saturday, she says goodbye to relatives who live in Jakarta.
Windania also posted a photo of herself on Instagram and her smiling daughter and nephew sitting on the plane before takeoff.
A Father on a business trip
Yohanes Suherdi was in Jakarta on a business trip and looking forward to returning to his family in Ngarak, a village several hours from Pontianak airport. His wife, Susilawati Bungahilaria told CNN that she hopes Suherdi will be found safe and that the family will be able to reunite soon. The couple has a 5-year-old son, Rian Gusti Rafael.
Bungahilaria said she spoke with her husband shortly before takeoff.
“His last message to me was not to forget to take our son to see a doctor because he had a fever,” she said.
Suherdi said that her son keeps asking when his father is coming home.
A family of five
According to the aunt of the family who spoke to CNN, she fears that a family of five from Bangka island — an island to the east of Sumatra — was missing and feared dead.
On Saturday, the family released a statement saying that 26-year-old Rizki Wahyudi, his 26-year-old wife, Indah Halimah Putri, and their 7-month-old son were on the plane that crashed. Wahyudi’s mother and cousin were also on the flight. The family of five had been in the Bangka Islands visiting other family members and were headed back to West Kalimantan via Jakarta.
