Shahzada Dawood, 48, and his son Sulaiman Dawood, 19, are two of the paying tourists who embarked on the 12,500-foot dive to view the famous shipwreck on OceanGate Expeditions sub, the Titan — 370 miles off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada, according to the Associated Press.

The company that managed the Titantic-bound deep-sea submersible that went missing with five people aboard on Sunday announced in a statement Thursday that it believes they are all dead. “We now believe that our CEO Stockton Rush, Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman Dawood, Hamish Harding, and Paul-Henri Nargeolet, have sadly been lost,” OceanGate said in a statement. “These men were true explorers who shared a distinct spirit of adventure, and a deep passion for exploring and protecting the world’s oceans. Our hearts are with these five souls and every member of their families during this tragic time. We grieve the loss of life and joy they brought to everyone they knew.”

The news comes shortly after the US Coast Guard said it found a “debris field” in the search area near the Titanic that, according to a memo obtained by CNN, has been assessed to be from the external body of the submersible. The debris was located on the ocean floor, roughly 500 meters off of the bow of the Titanic, at about 8:55 a.m. ET. The Coast Guard said it plans to host a press briefing at 3 p.m. ET to “discuss findings from the Horizon Arctic’s ROV on the sea floor near the Titanic.” A spokesperson for Pelagic Research Services confirmed to CNN their remote-operated vehicle, which was the first to conduct a search for the submersible on the sea floor, found the debris field.

The news comes as the search for the vessel, known as the Titan, has reached a “critical” stage, the co-founder of the company operating the submersible said Thursday. Follow live Titanic submersible updates Today will be a critical day in this search and rescue mission, as the sub’s life support supplies are starting to run low,” Guillermo Sohnlein, the co-founder of OceanGate, the company operating the expedition, said in a statement Thursday. Sohnlein said he is “certain” that pilot Stockton Rush and the crew “realized days ago that the best thing they can do to ensure their rescue is to extend the limits of those supplies by relaxing as much as possible. I firmly believe that the time window available for their rescue is longer than what most people think.”

The Dawood family is among the richest in Pakistan, with their fortune steaming from Dawood Hercules Corporation Limited, a public investment holding company that focuses on agriculture, industries, and the health sector.

Titanic tourist submarine missing

The Titanic-bound submersible was reported missing Sunday night after it failed to return to the Canadian research ship it launched from earlier that morning. That ship, the Polar Prince, reported losing contact with the sub about an hour and 45 minutes after submerging and has been unable to reestablish communication since.

Hamish, 58, is the chairman of the aircraft firm Action Aviation and is known as a daring explorer who flew to space aboard the Blue Origin in 2022 and holds three Guinness World Records. As Coast Guard crews begin attempting to pull off the deepest save and rescue mission in human history, concern for oxygen onboard the submersible ship weighs heavily in the shadows — with officials revealing Monday night that the vessel must be located in the next 70 to 96 hours. The sub’s 96-hour oxygen supply has been dwindling since about 6 a.m. Sunday. While the submersible might still be intact if it is beyond the continental shelf, there are very few vessels that can get that deep, and certainly not divers,” said Alistair Greig, a professor of marine engineering at University College London.

Along with the frightening feeling of being stranded miles underwater, those aboard are likely dealing with “a very, very uncomfortable, dark experience with a lot of hope and prayers,” John Mixson, a retired US Coast Guard lieutenant commander, explained. “From what I understand, the vessels are not designed for long-range, multi-day excursions,” Mixson said. OceanGate Expeditions has allowed tourists to explore the Titanic’s wreckage at a staggering $250,000 per ticket since 2019. The Coast Guard revealed its search is focusing on an area about 900 miles off the coast of Cape Cod and are using both aircraft and ships to locate the missing sub. A remotely operated vehicle that can plunge to depths of up to 20,000 feet to the site of the missing sub has also been added to the search and rescue efforts, according to an advisor to OceanGate, David Concannon.
