Boston, Mass. — June 22, 2023
A debris field has been discovered within the designated search area for a 21-foot submersible that went missing on Sunday during a voyage to explore the wreckage of the Titanic 13,000 feet below the surface of the Atlantic.
The finding was made by a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) near the site of the Titanic, sparking ongoing evaluation by experts within the unified command.
The United States Coast Guard has launched an extensive search operation for five individuals following the loss of contact between the Canadian research vessel Polar Prince and their Titan submersible. The incident occurred approximately 900 miles east of Cape Cod during a dive on Sunday morning.
