Fox News has more on the story:
The two U.S. Navy sailors who were reported missing after falling into the sea while conducting a nighttime boarding mission Thursday off the coast of Somalia have been identified as SEALs, according to the U.S. Central Command.
The two special forces operators were climbing aboard a vessel while on a mission in the Gulf of Aden when high waves knocked one into the sea.
The second SEAL jumped in after the first as part of Navy SEAL protocol to help a partner in distress and both vanished, the Associated Press said.
Both SEALs are still missing and a search and rescue mission continues.
