Argentina is giving up its rescue mission for the 44 crew members of a submarine that went missing at sea.

The search for the ARA San Juan is still ongoing, but officials say they don't expect to find any survivors from the vessel at this point. The sub, which had a 10-day air supply on board, disappeared 15 days ago.
