US Coastguard discovers debris field in search for missing Titanic sub

A debris field has been discovered in the search area for the missing Titan submersible by a remotely operated underwater vehicle near the Titanic, the US Coast Guard has said.

The vessel disappeared on Sunday afternoon in the Atlantic Ocean, some 435 miles south of Newfoundland, Canada, during an expedition dive to see the wreck of the Titanic.

The US Coast Guard had predicted that the air supply in the vessel would run out at 12.08pm UK time on Thursday.

“Experts within the unified command are evaluating the information,” a statement on Twitter added.

A news conference to discuss the findings is scheduled to take place at 8pm UK time tonight.
