After going underwater on Sunday, a 'Titanic' tour submarine has gone missing.

More precisely, after having gone underwater at 9am on Sunday, the 'Titanic' tour submarine has yet to resurface, causing a delay of more than 40 hours from its planned resurface time. Today, the search for the missing 'OceanGate' sub is still ongoing. 

A search operation is currently underway to find the submarine with five explorers on board. The explorers had originally gone underwater to view the Titanic wreckage, located almost 13,000 FT below the surface southeast of Newfoundland. 

"While a lot of the search for the missing submersible has been focused on the surface of the water, the team now has underwater search capability on scene," revealed US Coast Guard First District Commander Rear, Adm. John Mauger, in an interview with CNN.
