VIRGINIA BEACH, Va.- The search continues for a sailor who's been missing since a Navy helicopter with five crew members aboard crashed in the ocean off the Virginia coast.

Two people died in the Wednesday crash, which happened during a routine training mission.

Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class Brandyn Hill says the Coast Guard searched for the missing sailor by air and sea throughout the night and has crews on scene Thursday morning. Hill says the Navy also is scheduled to send out two helicopters to assist with the search.

The Navy says the two who died were among four crewmembers hoisted from the 42-degree waters Wednesday by a Navy helicopter and taken to a hospital. The two surviving sailors were being treated at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.
