June 15, 2010

Dolphins have found one Navy underwater vehicle that was lost during a training exercise at the southern end of the Chesapeake Bay.

Lt. Cmdr. Susan Henson says the Navy has called off the search for three other underwater vehicles that also were lost.

Thirteen unmanned vehicles were being used for explosive ordnance disposal training when communication was lost with four of them.

The Navy announced Monday that dolphins located one in Thimble Shoals Channel.
