British billionaire and aviator Hamish Harding on Sunday posted on his Instagram account that he was joining to see the wreck of the Titanic.

"It is with great pride to finally announce for their RMS TITANIC Mission as mission specialists on the submarine that descended to the Titanic," he wrote.

"Due to the worst winter in Newfoundland in 40 years, this mission will likely be the first and only manned mission to the Titanic in 2023," the 58-year-old aviator added.

"The aerial window has just opened and we will try diving tomorrow."

It is unknown who else is in it. The Guardian newspaper said there were five people on board. OceanGate was not immediately unreachable.

The Canadian Coast Guard said it was taking part in the search effort with a fixed-wing aircraft and a ship sent to the search area.

The Titanic hit an iceberg and sank in 1912 during her maiden voyage from England to New York with 2,224 passengers and crew on board. More than 1,500 people died in the tragedy.

The wreck is in two main sections 400 miles off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada, under 12,500 feet (3,800 meters) of water. It was discovered in 1985 and remains a source of fascination and allure for nautical experts and underwater tourists.

Hopefully with "today's shocking news, a submarine cruiser wrecking the Titanic is missing". The missing victims can be found soon.
