Daughter of renowned diver inside missing Titanic sub speaks out

Paul-Henri Nargeolet's daughter has spoken out after the longtime researcher of the Titanic wreck went missing.

The daughter of a renowned diver who is one of the five men onboard the missing Titanic sub has spoken out.

Ever since the submersible named Titan was last heard of on Sunday, rescue teams have been franticly fighting the clock in a bid to find it.

Unfortunately, the US Coast Guard confirmed today (22 June) that debris had been found near the wreckage of the Titanic during the search for the missing vessel.

That came just hours after oxygen on board the Titan was believed to have run out, with the US Coast Guard making the bleak prediction.

Despite that, the Coast Guard has also said the search operation wont stop 'for many days' after the oxygen had run out.

The vessel has been missing since Sunday.

Rear Admiral John Mauger of the US Coast Guard said the search operation is still 'an active search and rescue', before adding: "We continue to keep the crew members and the families in our thoughts as we proceed with this search and rescue while we’re cognisant of the time and we’ve factored in a lot of data and information into the search.

“This is still an active search and rescue at this point and we’re using the equipment that we have on the bottom right now, the remote operated vehicles to expand our search capability, and then also to provide rescue capability as well.”

The ones that are impacted the most by this terrible situation are the family and friends of those onboard.

While some have come out and criticised OceanGate - the company behind the voyage - others have told the world what makes their family member or friend so special.

One of the five onboard is Paul-Henry Nargeolet - a longtime researcher of the Titanic wreck, and a veteran submarine pilot.

Nargeolet even led the first recovery expedition to the Titanic back in 1987.

Sidonie Nargeolet, Paul-Henri's daughter, recently spoke to Reuters about her father's disappearance.

She admitted to having mixed emotions about her father missing, but what gives her some comfort is the fact he was doing what he loved.

"If they are not found, it will be very sad for us because we will not see him again," she told the outlet.

Sidonie went on to say that, while at times she has hope her father and the four other passengers will be found safe and well, she concedes with each passing hour that becomes more unlikely.

She concluded: "What he liked the most was to be in a submarine, (near) the Titanic. He is where he really loved being. I would prefer him (dying) at a place where he is very happy."
