He thanked the airline crew and local people who went to the rescue passengers, for their quick response in the evacuation.

He said the initial concern for the Government and the airline was the safety and well being of passengers.

Passengers and crew were taken to the hospital for checks and no serious injuries were reported.

An Air Niugini spokeswoman did not immediately respond on Monday to a request for an update on the search for the passenger and for details including his nationality.

According to Borja, the Filipinos were on their way to the Philippines for a vacation when their plane crashed in a lagoon short of the runway as it attempted to land in Chuuk Island airport.

The airline operating a flight that crashed into a Pacific lagoon in Micronesia on Friday now says one man is missing, after earlier saying all 47 passengers and crew had safely evacuated.

The aircraft ended up in a lagoon about 150 yards short of the single runway at Chuuk Airport in Weno.

Seal slaps kayaker with an octopus
One seal swam right up next to them, and while trying to chew off the leg of the octopus, ended up slapping them in the face. According to Mulinder, the seal was fighting with the octopus near him, eventually disappearing under water.

"I thought we landed hard, until I looked over to the side of the plane and saw a hole the water was coming in".

The airline said it had received reports that "the weather was very poor with heavy rain and reduced visibility at the time of incident". "I thought "this is not the way it's supposed to happen".

"It's just surreal", said Jaynes, managing editor of The Kaselehlie Press, a newspaper on Pohnpei, another Micronesian island.

Social media posts shows a series of small boats helping passengers from the submerged aircraft.

He said he has yet to see a passenger manifest, but typical passengers would include businesspeople from Micronesia, Papua New Guinea and Australia, as well as some tourists. But their total land area is only four times the size of the USA capital. It said it was in touch with embassies, passenger representatives, stakeholders and families of the crew.

Flight 73 was flying from Pohnpei, about 415 miles to the east, stopping in Chuuk before a scheduled leg to Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea.

Air Niugini is Papua New Guinea's national carrier.
