LIHUE — Emergency responders completed a fourth morning of searching without any trace of five missing aviators from an Army UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter that went down off of Kaena Point, the westernmost tip of land of Oahu.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the Coast Guard said in a statement responders were expected to have completed 75 separate trips and covered more than 61,000 square miles by last Friday afternoon.

Small debris continued to be recovered along the shore off Kaena Point. No debris was found Friday at sea.

The search began Tuesday night after Army personnel lost contact with a UH-60 Black Hawk aircrew conducting night training off Oahu.
