Search under way for missing U.S. sailor in Gulf of Oman
- The sailor did not report to watch, authorities say
- Helicopters and other aircraft are being used
"The sailor did not report to watch" Tuesday aboard the USS Halsey, and "after a search of the ship, man overboard was called."
However, the sailor is a female, a U.S. military official said.
Helicopters and other aircraft were being used in the search for the sailor, who was not identified because of the ongoing search.
