OceanGate Expeditions has said that it is getting help from several government agencies in an attempt to regain contact with a group on a submersible that has gone missing. BBC reported that the company operating the missing submersible said that it is “exploring and mobilizing all options.”
“Our entire focus is on the crewmembers in the submersible and their families,” OceanGate said in a statement. The company added that they are working with several government agencies to bring about the “safe return of the crewmembers.”
OceanGate tweeted out on June 1: “Despite being in the middle of the North Atlantic, we have the internet connection we need to make our #Titanic dive operations a success - thank you @Starlink!”
The company last tweeted about the expedition on June 15, per CBS News.
OceanGate charges $250,000 for tourists to go down to see the wreckage of the Titanic, which sits 12,500 feet below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean around 370 miles off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada.
The vessel is reported to be capable of carrying five people, but it is uncertain how many people were actually on it, or if any of the guests were paying tourists.
Though the expedition took off from Canada, the Boston coast guard is apparently leading the search.
OceanGate’s submersible, The Titan, is reportedly the only five-person sub that has the ability to reach the Titanic’s remaining parts.
