The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for two Marine helicopters carrying 12 people, following reports they collided near the island of Oahu in Hawaii. A spokeswoman says the accident happened just before midnight local time. The aircraft, believed to be Sikorsky heavy-lift transport helicopters, belong to the Marine Corps Air Station at Kaneohe Bay. Officials say the search operation has been hampered by dark, overcast conditions. The Coast Guard says it has found debris although there is no confirmation yet that it comes from the missing aircraft.
