BREAKING: 11 Soldiers Missing, Assumed Dead After Army Helicopter Crash

An Army helicopter has gone down near Eglin Air Force Base in the Florida Panhandle, officials reported this hour. 11 soldiers are missing and all are presumed dead at this time.

Dense fog was hampering the recovery teams immediately after the crash.

Search crews struggled with dense fog Wednesday morning but were able to locate debris believed to be from the Army National Guard helicopter– a UH-60 Black Hawk– that crashed during a routine exercise at about 8:20 p.m. Tuesday.

“At this time all are missing,” Andy Bourland, a spokesman for Eglin Air Force Base, said.

Bourland told “Fox & Friends” that debris was found near the Navarre Bridge, which is located on a small strip of land between Choctawhatchee Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

A spokeswoman from the base said in an e-mail that human remains washed ashore but said it is still considered a search-and-rescue mission.
