Submarine bound for Titanic goes missing: BBC reports


A small submarine bringing tourists to the Titanic has gone missing somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean, the BBC is reporting.

The Canadian Coast Guard told CBC News on Monday morning the search falls under the jurisdiction of the Boston Coast Guard.

The American group confirmed a search is underway but provided no other details.

Submersible tours are offered by OceanGate Expeditions, a U.S.-based company United States with operations in Newfoundland. The tours cost about $250,000. 

While CBC News has been unable to confirm the missing submersible belongs to OceanGate Expeditions, the company was operating in St. John’s last week and posted a picture Thursday of crews aboard its ship on the Atlantic Ocean.

Those tours are a series of five eight-day missions to the Titanic with the money raised by tourists funding Titanic research.

The company’s CEO, Stockton Rush, could not be reached for comment Monday.

More to come.
