A spokesman for Ocean Gate said: “We are exploring and mobilizing all options to bring the crew back safely. “Our entire focus is on the crewmembers in the submersible and their families. “We are deeply thankful for the extensive assistance we have received from several government agencies and deep sea companies in our efforts to reestablish contact with the submersible.
