Canadian helicopter engaged in NATO exercises missing off Greek coast

A Canadian helicopter engaged in North Atlantic Treaty Organization exercises off the coast of Greece disappeared and search-and-rescue efforts were underway, the Canadian Armed Forces said on Wednesday.

The defence force said on Twitter that the HMCS Fredericton lost contact with a CH-148 Cyclone aircraft that had deployed on the ship. No further details were provided.

The helicopter was outside the control zone of Greece, 50 miles (80 km) off the Greek island of Cephalonia, Italy’s Corriere della Sera newspaper reported, saying six people were missing.
