AIBN ends the searches for the wreckage from the helicopter accident at Turøy.

There are still essential parts missing, but AIBN discounted the search for more wreckage on Friday afternoon, newspaper VG reports.
– We have made several discoveries, but we still have parts that we consider essential to shed light on the accident, and those have not been found. But we need to sit down and review the findings and see what we have and where we have investigated, before we can determine whether we should continue the search, aircraft accident investigator Tor Nørstegård said.
Twelve men and one woman in the ages of 32 to 60 years died in the helicopter accident at Turøy northwest of Sotra near Bergen 12 o’clock, Friday 29th April.
