The Denver Post - - NEWS -

haleiwa, hawaii» Res­cuers bat­tled winds of up to 23 mph and waves up to 30 feet as they searched for 12 Marines who are miss­ing af­ter two he­li­copters they were in crashed Thurs­day night off the Hawai­ian is­land of Oahu.

The winds and the waves com­pli­cated the search, pos­si­bly push­ing de­bris be­yond the 2-mile search area. “It makes find­ing things in­cred­i­bly dif­fi­cult,” Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Scott Carr said.
