The search is growing increasingly desperate for a small submersible that disappeared while taking five people to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.

Everett-based company OceanGate built the vessel – and its CEO Stockton Rush was among the five on board. The company confirmed to KIRO 7 Tuesday afternoon that Rush was piloting the vessel on its journey to visit the Titanic wreckage.

The Titanic wreck is 2.4 miles underwater – nearly the depth Mount Rainier would be if it was inverted into the Atlantic Ocean.
