Who Is on the Missing 'Titanic'-Bound Sub? All About the Passengers

New information is coming out about the people who were on the Titan, a submarine that was going to the Titanic but hasn't been seen since.

OceanGate Expeditions, which runs a "Titanic Expedition" to the historic spot, sent the submersible out for the first time on June 18 morning. 

The crew of the Canadian expedition ship Polar Prince lost touch with the submersible about two hours into the dive, according to the US Coast Guard. Soon after, the Titan was looked for. 

At a news conference on June 20, Captain Jamie Frederick of the United States Coast Guard confirmed that there were five people on board, including an operator and four mission specialists. 

He told Business Aviation Magazine before that he and his parents grew up in Hong Kong and that he became a pilot in the mid-1980s while he was a student at Cambridge University.
