Search and rescue operations continue for three U.S. Marines that were aboard an MV-22 Osprey involved in a mishap off of the east coast of Australia around 4:00 p.m. August 5.

"Boats and aircraft of the 31st expeditionary marine corps units and the strike group amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard conduct search and rescue operation", - is spoken in the message.

The MV-22B "Osprey" tilt rotor aircraft, which can take off and land vertically, has a crew of four and can carry up to the 32 people.

It is believed 23 of the 26 on-board personnel are accounted for.

Twenty-six personnel were on board the aircraft when the incident occurred but only three had been rescued so far, according to the statement.
