DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The U.S. Navy says the search is ongoing for one of its sailors believed to have fallen overboard while on patrol in the Gulf of Oman.

Lt. Frederick Martin of the Bahrain-based U.S. 5th Fleet said Wednesday helicopters from three warships and P-3 maritime patrol planes remain actively involved in the search, now in its second day.

The sailor was reported missing from the destroyer USS Halsey on Tuesday evening after failing to report for watch duty.

Martin wouldn't speculate on how long the search would continue. The identity of the sailor hasn't been released.
