Contact was lost after the CH-148 took off from the frigate HMCS Fredericton (FFH 337) during a Nato exercise yesterday evening.

In the area there were, at least the Italian Navy frigate Virginio Fasan (F591), the Turkish Navy frigate Salihreis (F-246), and the Canadian ship.

Also a Hellenic Navy helicopter is participating in the SAR mission.

Some wreckages would have been found at sea but there is no definite information on the fate of the crew.
