An Indonesian army helicopter carrying five people went missing Thursday over Borneo island, an official said, the latest blow to the country's accident-prone military.

The Bell 412 helicopter lost contact in the morning on a short flight from Tarakan in North Kalimantan province to Long Bawan near the Malaysian border. Borneo is shared between Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei.

Local search and rescue chief Mujiono, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, said a team of military personnel and search and rescue officials had been sent to the area where the aircraft was believed to have disappeared.
