Searchers Find Life Rafts Off Hawaii But No Marines:

Three of four life rafts believed to be aboard two military helicopters that collided off Hawaii have been retrieved, the U.S. Coast Guard said Monday in a press release.

The fourth raft was spotted and is expected to be removed later Monday.

Rescuers have expanded their search for 12 Marines missing since their two military helicopters apparently crashed into each other Thursday over the waters off Oahu.

After four days of searching, “There is no indication from the sightings that any survivors have been aboard any of the life rafts,” the release said.

A Navy ship equipped with sonar arrived Sunday and conducted an underwater search. No debris was sighted, the Coast Guard said.
