Search for 12 Marines ends without finding survivors after helicopters crash

After five days without finding any survivors, the Coast Guard suspended its search for 12 Marines who have been missing since Jan. 14 when their two CH-53 helicopters crashed off Oahu.

“The decision to suspend the search without finding survivors was particularly difficult,” said Capt. James Jenkins, commander of the Coast Guard’s 14th District.
