MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) — The U.S. Navy says search teams are looking for two missing airmen after a helicopter crash in the Red Sea.

Three crew members were rescued late Sunday after the MH-60S Knight-hawk went down in the central Red Sea while operating with the destroyer USS William P. Lawrence.

A statement today from the Bahrain-based 5th Fleet says aircraft and vessels are taking part in the search for the two others.

The Navy says an investigation is under way, but there was no hostile activity involved.
