North Wales Police have taken charge of the ground search for the helicopter that went missing on route from Milton Keynes to Dublin.
The search will continue in the Snowdonia area today.
Juliet Dunlop is in Caernarfon Bay:
An extensive search of the Irish Sea and Snowdonia was launched at around 4.15pm yesterday, after the Distress and Diversion system lost radar contact with the helicopter.
Two UK Coastguard search and rescue helicopters based at Caernarfon and St Athan were scrambled to scan the area, with all vessels on the Irish Sea route at the time also asked to report sightings.
The coastguard later said the overnight search had been scaled back due to poor conditions.
The weather continues to hamper the search, with poor visibility meaning the air search is still suspended.
North Wales Police are co-ordinating ground searches with mountain rescue teams, and working with the Coastguard and the Aeronautical Rescue Co-ordination Centre (ARCC) to continue looking for the missing helicopter.
