The search has been ongoing for a longer period of time, and there are no signs of survivors, but also not found a single body. Yet there are fears that probably all 12 of the missing an accident did not survive. The debris field extends over an area of around 2 to 2.5 miles, the sea here is not very deep - probably around 12 meters. Questing Hercules had to go back after he collided with a bird. The quest join the ships of the U.S. Navy - destroyers the USS Gridley and USS John Paul Jones. Coast guard (Coast Guard) put that cutter Kiska.
