Base control indicated that before communication broke off at 8:00 pm, the helicopter was in distress.

The helicopter worked the area of ??Leoncio Prado and Alto Huallaga (Tingo María) under drug control in cooperation with the United States.

The three crew, two officers and a sergeant of the Peruvian police members were retrieved and taken to the air base in Tingo Maria. Search teams located the helicopter five minutes from a local police base.
