Rescue teams are continuing their hunt Thursday for a missing submersible that had planned to visit the wrecked Titanic site.
Remote-operated vehicles are still searching for the sub, called Titan, near the site where a surveillance aircraft first detected “underwater noises” late Tuesday.
The 21-foot Titan is carrying five people who hoped to see the famous wrecked ocean liner on Sunday. If still intact, the vessel’s oxygen supply may run out early Thursday morning, according to estimates from those involved in the search.
British-based Pakistani tycoon and his teenage son are among five on board the missing Titanic tourist submarine.

The father and son are reportedly together with French submersible pilot Paul-Henry Nargeolet and chief executive and founder of OceanGate Expeditions Stockton Rushton and British billionaire Mr Harding.
However, something really strange happened this morning exactly 10 min before they lost their oxygen!
After all the searching the search and rescue parties decided to bring down a robot on the ocean floor but with only 10 minutes remaining!
The French government delivered its Victor 6000, a robot capable of diving 20,000 feet below sea level, to the area Titan vanished at around 6 p.m. Wednesday, with just 10 minutes remaining to find the missing sub.
The unmanned robot — which is one of the few vessels in the world capable of descending to the 12,000-feet-deep resting place of the Titanic — is equipped with a mechanical robot arm that could help drag the Titan back to the surface.
There’s another theory regarding the location of the missing Titan, which is that it was caught on the Titanic wreck.
The mystery will remain why did they wait 10 minutes before the sub runs out of oxygen to send the only hope they have and that’s the robot, Victor!
