"A debris field was discovered within the search area by an ROV near the Titanic. Experts within the unified command are evaluating the information," the tweet read.

It's unclear if the debris is related to the "Titan," which went missing on Sunday during a voyage to the famous wreckage of the Titanic.

The five on board the $250k per person voyage included British-Pakistani businessman Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman, chief executive of OceanGate Expeditions Stockton Rush, British billionaire Hamish Harding, and French submersible pilot Paul-Henri Nargeolet.

The debris news comes one day after officials said they heard underwater banging noises on several occasions as they desperately searched for the missing vessel; however, they couldn't find the Titan.

As RadarOnline.com reported, the sub's 96-hour emergency oxygen supply ran out on Thursday at 7 AM ET. The vessel was on a mission to explore the Titanic wreck when it disappeared about 435 miles south of St John's in Newfoundland, Canada. Those on board lost communication with OceanGate roughly two hours into the trip.

According to reports, OceanGate waited 8 hours to notify the coast guard about the missing sub.
