Default Missing C208 Caravan

From ASN

A Cessna 208 apparently crashed into the Pacific Ocean, at 120 km east of Sendai, Japan. The sole Norwegian pilot was missing. The plane took off from Saipan, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, USA at ca. 07:00 Japan Standard Time (JST) for an international flight to New Chitose, Japan with estimated flight time of 9 hours. Though the position report at 10:23 JST was normally established, the next report planed at 11:44 JST was not received by the Japanese ATC.
