There is a massive search for 3 Navy men lost off the coast of North Carolina. Navy spokesmen from Navy Station Mayport, Florida, say that three of their Navy crew members doing helicopter anti-submarine training off our coast were lost Saturday night around 10:50. Currently the USS Kearsarge has deployed ships, the Expeditionary Strike Group has deployed planes, and the Coast Guard helicopters, and boats have all been called into help with the search and rescue mission for these three crew members.
The helicopter lost communications somewhere in the Cherry Point training area off our coast. The members have now been missing for over 24 hours. So far none of the crew, or any wreckage has been found. We'll keep you posted on this search.
