The uh-1y does have an emergency beacon on board, but officials say it is only activated automatically, if it hits water.

Reporter: The crew would have had to turn the beacon or radio on themselves, and searchers have heard nothing. Even satellite frequencies sometimes can be hard to get out when you're in a mountainous terrain. Reporter: The search will resume again in a few hours. The Marine Corps is trying to remain hopeful. They say that while there has been no communication from any of the six, there has been no indication of a crash or flames or smoke, either. David?
