The search for Ciaran Duffy, Paul Ormsby and Mark Duffy continues into day two. 

The three coast guard members have been missing since the early hours of yesterday morning when tragedy struck and the coastguard helicopter they were travelling in crashed off the coast of Mayo.

The helicopter known as Rescue 116 made its last call to base at 12:45am, when the helicopter was 10 miles out to sea.    

Final crew member Dara Fitzpatrick was found in critical condition yesterday when pulled from the water by rescuers, but passed away later yesterday evening at Mayo University Hospital.

Our thoughts and prayers are with friends and family of Rescue 116.
