ABC Radio reports that there was no crash

I just heard on the ABC radio news that the helicopter is safe, and that there wasn't a crash. No further details yet.

I do hope that's right.

Indonesian helicopter transporting Aussies safe

Police in West Timor say a helicopter reported missing with Australians on board is safe and has not been involved in an accident.
The ABC's Jakarta office has spoken to police in the east of the Indonesian archipelago.
No more details are available at this stage.
Foreign press reports had said an Australian pilot, two Australian tourists and two Indonesian guides were on board the flight over Flores Island.
There were reports of white smoke in the area where the helicopter last made contact.
