Indonesia’s National Search and Rescue Agency team are continuing a search operation for the 62 passengers of Sriwijaya Air flight 182, which crashed into the ocean shortly after takeoff on Saturday.

The Boeing 737-500 plane was heading from Jakarta to the city of Pontianak, on the Indonesian side of Borneo, when it lost contact at 2:40 p.m. local time (2:40 a.m. ET), 11 nautical miles north of Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.

There were 50 passengers — 43 adults and 7 children — on board, as well as 12 crew members, according to Indonesia’s Minister of Transportation.

On Sunday, family members gathered at a victim identification center in Jakarta and at crisis center in Pontianak, where they waited any news of their loved ones.

Here’s what we know about the victims so far.
