An Indonesian army helicopter which lost contact while passing above Borneo Island on November 24 was located on Sunday, a military spokesman said.

The military personnel have received the ELT (emergency locater transponder) signal from the missing helicopter, military spokesman Brig. General Wuryanto told Xinhua news agency.

According to him, five people -- the pilot and four crew members -- were aboard the helicopter.

The chopper was carrying logistics for soldiers guarding the borders of Indonesia and Malaysia in North Kalimantan province of the island.

The ELT signal informs the coordinate position of a crashed aircraft to satellite.
