Helicopter With 7 Onboard Missing in Hawaii

The Coast Guard was searching Thursday night for a tour helicopter with seven people on board, including two children, according to Hawaii News New.

The helicopter didn’t come back from a tour off the Na Pali coast of the Hawaiian island of Kauai. Petty Officer 1st Class Robert Cox, of Coast Guard Joint Rescue Command Center Honolulu, called weather conditions in the search area “challenging,” with low visibility and blustery winds.

The pilot and six passengers were on board. The helicopter has an electronic locator, but no signals have been received, officials said.
