The search continues on Tuesday for a submersible vessel with five people on board. The vessel was on an expedition to the wreck of the Titanic and lost contact with the surface, which is located about 900 nautical miles off of Cape Cod.

 The vessel was at a depth of 13,000 feet to explore the wreckage. The 21-foot submersible has a 96-hour oxygen supply (4 days), and there should be at least 53 hours left as of 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.

According to the U.S. Coast Guard, Northeast,   the crew submerged on Sunday morning, and lost contact with the ship that carried the vessel about 1 hour and 45 minutes into the dive.

The tourists on board the vessel funded the expedition by spending anywhere from $100,000 to $150,000 per person, according to the Associated Press.

Now the search is a race against time.  Follow the US Coast Guard Northeast for the latest.
