Missing helicopter search under way at Caernarfon Bay

A helicopter with five people on board has gone missing over Caernarfon Bay in north Wales.

The privately-owned helicopter is believed to have left Milton Keynes earlier on Wednesday en route to Dublin.

The UK Coastguard said radar contact was lost on Wednesday afternoon.

A UK Coastguard helicopter, based at Caernarfon, in Gwynedd, has been searching the area.

A second search and rescue helicopter, based at St Athan, Vale of Glamorgan, joined the search on Wednesday evening over the Irish Sea.

North Wales Police has been notified of the search operation for the twin squirrel red helicopter.

A Mayday broadcast has been issued to all vessels passing through the Irish Sea route to contact the UK Coastguard if they have seen anything.

UK Coastguard duty commander Peter Davies said: "We have established a search plan between Caernarfon Bay and the shore of Dublin and currently have two coastguard helicopters searching the route."

Could have been G-PACO or EI-EGL I thinks?

Please can we not speculate on which aircraft it is until confirmed. Besides, the report says Squirrel and one of the aircraft you have mentioned isn't a Squirrel.  Good
