2 bodies found in Gulf of Mexico crash search area

Updated:
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Coast Guard says a dive team has found two bodies in the area being searched for a helicopter that sank Wednesday.
 
However, Petty Officer Bill Colclough said Thursday he does not know if the bodies are those of the two people who were in the helicopter. 

Officials with the helicopter's owner, Westwind Helicopters, Inc. of Santa Fe, Texas, did not immediately return calls for comment. The helicopter crashed and sank Wednesday afternoon in the Gulf of Mexico about 60 miles south of Terrebonne Bay. 

In a news release Wednesday, the Coast Guard said the crew of a nearby rig reported the crash. It says crew members launched a life raft but the aircraft sank before they could get to it.
