The helicopter was found this morning but the six marines and two Nepali soldiers were still missing.  Out of the eight missing people three bodies were recovered.  The helicopter wreckage was found 35 miles from Kathmandu, reported by the editor of Nepal Times, Kunda Dixit. 

The helicopter was sent to deliver aid to the village of Charikot.  The cause of crash is unknown but an Indian helicopter that heard radio chatter speculates that there was a fuel problem, stated Steve Warren (US Army Colonel). 

Hopefully the remaining 5 passengers of the helicopter are safe.
