Crews searching for five soldiers missing from an Army helicopter crash off Hawaii have found parts of a fuselage and a helmet.

Honolulu fire Capt. David Jenkins said Wednesday that the items were found about 2 miles off Oahu's Kaena Point. He says the search is focused in the area.

Two Black Hawk crews were conducting training between Kaena Point and Oahu's Dillingham Airfield late Tuesday when one aircrew lost contact with the other.

The missing helicopter is a UH-60 Black Hawk from the 25th Combat Aviation Brigade.

The Fire Department has rescue boats at the scene, while the U.S. Coast Guard sent an airplane, helicopter and two boats. An Army helicopter crew also is looking.

Officials say two Black Hawk crews were conducting training between Kaena Point and Dillingham Airfield at the time communications were lost.
