Rescuers on Wednesday said despite finding three helmets, none of the four crew members had been found at the site where an Air Self-Defense Force helicopter crashed the day before in waters off Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture.

The UH-60J helicopter disappeared from radar at around 6 p.m., 10 minutes after it took off, when it was flying over the ocean some 30 km south of the coast of Hamamatsu. ASDF helicopters and Japan Coast Guard patrol ships were taking part in the search for the missing crew.
