OSLO (Reuters) - Norwegian rescuers were searching for a second day on Friday for a Russian helicopter that went missing at sea with eight people on board off the coast of the Arctic Svalbard archipelago.

"There is still no wreckage found from the helicopter, but an oil spill has been observed in the area," Norway's joint rescue center said in a statement.
