AIRPORT OF LONDON — A man who flew a helicopter over London on Friday to search for missing Flight 370 flight data recorder (FDRR) pilot Alan Davies has returned to the search area and is now back at the airport, according to the BBC.
The helicopter pilot, who had not been seen since he went missing on March 8, has not been spotted since.
He is now part of the team that is using a drone to search the region and is in contact with authorities.
Davies, 42, from the city of Kent, had flown to the city for the first time on Friday, after flying to the United Arab Emirates.
His family and friends have posted on social media that he is fine, and that they are in contact.
After flying over the search zone, he was seen on the ground on Friday and then returned to his home on a private jet.
There were some reports that he had returned to London, but the airport said he was not.
Officials have also been concerned about his whereabouts.
Authorities have been monitoring his movements since the first day he went on the flight.
They have not had any sightings of him since he left his home and are concerned about whether he has been seen again.
Aerial ladder operations have continued as the search continues.
On Friday, two search teams were still on the search route after a week-long search.
One of the teams, led by the Royal Navy, was seen looking north on Saturday.
However, the search continued as far north as the British Isles, the U.K. coast and the Irish Sea, the BBC reported.
While there were no immediate reports of a breakthrough in the search for the plane, a search team member told the BBC that the search is continuing in the “tidal sweep area” where the flight recorders were recovered.
“We are doing our best,” the team member said.
British Prime Minister David Cameron is scheduled to visit the airport this week.
