The submarine is owned by OceanGate Expeditions and has lost contact with the company one hour and 45 min after submerging.
The disappearance was reported on Monday, and the identities of the five crew members of the vehicle have not yet been reported, although one of the family members of the explorer Hamish Harding confirmed that he was on the submarine.
The OceanGate company amounts to $250,000 per person to make a trip to the wreckage of the Titanic.
The U.S. Coast Guard reported that the submarine went to the bottom of the sea from the Canadian vessel Polar Prince.
“The crew of 5 submerged Sunday morning, and the crew of the Polar Prince lost contact with them approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes after the vessel submerged,” it stated.
