Three of the five personnel missing after an MH-60S helicopter crashed in the Red Sea have been found and are in stable condition, according to the Navy.

The Knighthawk, assigned to Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 6, went down Sunday while operating with the guided-missile destroyer William P. Lawrence.

The search is ongoing for the other two personnel. Names of those on the helicopter have not been released.

The crash was not due to hostile activity, according to a Navy press release.

The Nimitz Carrier Strike Group is providing aircraft and small boats for search and rescue assistance.

The incident is under investigation.
