Abu Dhabi: The UAE Search and Rescue Team is continuing the search for Shaikh Ahmad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Managing Director of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (Adia) and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Zayed Foundation for Charity and Humanitarian Works, who is still missing following a glider accident on Friday.

The glider crashed into a lake near the Sidi Mohammad Bin Abdullah Dam near Rabat.

The Search and Rescue team, which left for Morocco on Friday, said that search operations are still ongoing with help from other international teams. However, the nature of the terrain is making the survey and tracking efforts especially challenging.

The pilot of the glider who was rescued after the crash is now in a stable condition.

The pilot who was rescued is in good condition, but the search for Shaikh Ahmad is continuing, the statement said, adding that a new statement would be issued about any developments.
