The Navy has called off a search for three missing crew members of a helicopter that crashed in the ocean about 50 miles (80 kilometers) off California's southern coast. Friday's crash during a training mission left one sailor dead, and the Navy had searched for the remaining crew through the night and into Saturday afternoon. "The cold water temperature and the time that elapsed since the crash occurred led Navy officials to conclude that aircrew survivability is extremely unlikely," said Navy Lt. Cmdr. Elizabeth Meydenbauer.
