We searched for neutron-rich Λ hypernuclei in the products of (Κ-stopped, π+) reaction with 9Be, 12C and 16O targets. No peaks were observed in the Λ hypernuclear region in the measured π+ momentum spectra. We set upper limits of the formation probabilities for 9ΛHe, 12ΛBe and 16ΛC. Keywords: NUCLEAR REACTIONS 9Be, 12C, 16O, (Κ-, π+), E at rest; measured pion spectra; deduced hypernuclei formation probability upper limits.
