( – Rescue crews are still searching for the missing Titanic tourist submersible that had been dropped into the North Atlantic Ocean over the weekend. The U.S. Coast Guard pointed out that the oxygen supply for the five passengers who had been hoping to see the Titanic wreck had now run out.

Capt. Jamie Frederick with the Coast Guard’s 1st District claimed that so far the search efforts had been unsuccessful but that there were search crews looking across the ocean in the hope of finding the submersible. As he pointed out this is a “complex search” and logistically there were many different assets that needed to be coordinated.

The Navy has also been helping with the search, while the Coast Guard is planning on deploying additional boats and aircraft. On Monday, the Defense Department also sent two C-130 aircrafts to join the search and a third C-130 from the Air National Guard is going to be joining the search on Tuesday according to Sabrina Singh, the Pentagon deputy press secretary.

Additionally, Singh stated that the Navy was also working with the Coast Guard for the provision of personnel and experts who could help assist in the search. She pointed out that they were doing everything in their power to survey the area and try to find the five-person submersible.

The five-person submersible had been a part of a tourist expedition looking for the 1912 Titanic shipwreck, however, it lost contact with a Canadian research ship only two hours after it dived into the water on Sunday.
