Rescue teams are racing against time to find a tourist submarine that was supposed to visit the wreck of the Titanic – but it has been missing since Sunday (18) with five people on board.

Two US media outlets reported on a leaked internal memo sent to the US Department of Homeland Security saying that a Canadian aircraft detected underwater “clicking sounds” at 30-minute intervals coming from the search area.

The p8 [aeronave canadense] I heard banging sounds in the area every 30 minutes. “Four hours later, additional sonar was deployed and knocks could still be heard,” Rolling Stone said.

CNN also reported an internal update sent out Tuesday night indicating that more votes were being captured.
