The U.S. Marines says it has ended the search and rescue mission for seven missing Marines and one Sailor following an accident in Southern California. All the service members are presumed dead. 

“It is with a heavy heart, that I decided to conclude the search and rescue effort,”  Col. Christopher Bronzi, 15th MEU Commanding Officer, said in a statement.

  “The steadfast dedication of the Marines, Sailors, and Coast Guardsmen to the persistent rescue effort was tremendous.” 

“As we turn to recovery operations, we will continue our exhaustive search for our missing Marines and Sailor,” Bronzi said.   

Fifteen Marines and one Sailor were participating in a routine training exercise Thursday off the coast of San Clemente Island, California, when the amphibious assault vehicle (AAV) they were riding in began to take on water and sank. Sixteen service members participated in the exercise.  Eight Marines were rescued, one died, and two others are in critical condition at a local hospital.   

The accident is under investigation. 

Marines frequently practice beach attacks using amphibious troop transport vehicles.

United Airlines executive missing, search underway in Lemont forest preserve

LEMONT, Ill. (WLS) -- A massive search is underway Friday for a high-ranking United Airlines executive from west suburban Elmhurst.

At least 100 volunteers along with K-9 units are searching for Jake Cefolia at the Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve. The 49-year-old was reported missing nearly a week ago on August 8. Police said they found his car at the forest preserve.

"He commonly ran, we have 9 or 10-mile loop here at the forest preserve, so he's an athletic 49-year-old gentleman," said Chief David Peterson, with the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County. "We don't know for sure he's still at the forest preserve, but at this point there's been no contact with family or friends."

United Airlines said Cefolia is a senior vice president of worldwide sales. The company said in a written statement: "Our friend and colleague, Jake Cefolia, SVP of Worldwide Sales, was last seen Thursday evening, August 6th. We're concerned about his well-being and have been in touch with Jake's family over the last couple of days to offer them our support. At the request of the family, we won't be releasing any additional details at this time.

"We have also been in touch with law enforcement and expressed our desire to do everything we can to help them as they lead the effort to find Jake. If you have any information that could be helpful in locating Jake, please contact the Elmhurst Police Department at (630) 530-3050. We ask everyone to respect the family's desire for privacy."
