Responders are searching for five missing crewmen after receiving a report of a downed U.S. Army helicopter off the coast of Hawaii, the U.S. Coast Guard said today.

The search was reported late-Tuesday night local time, about 2 miles west of Kaena Point, the westernmost tip of land on the island of Oahu.

Lt. Colonel Curtis Kellogg, a spokesman for the 25th Infantry Division, said two helicopters were taking part in a nighttime training mission off the shore of Kaena Point Tuesday night and, at 9:30 p.m., the second helicopter lost visual and radio contact with the first one.

The helicopter was reported down and a search-and-rescue mission was launched immediately, Kellogg said.

A debris field was spotted near Kaena Point at 11:28 p.m. local time Tuesday, the Coast Guard said.

Helicopter and boat crews are involved in the search, the Coast Guard said.
