The Canadian military says it has lost contact with one of its helicopters in the Mediterranean.

In a statement, the military says the aircraft from HMCS Fredericton went missing during an exercise off the coast of Greece.

It says a search-and-rescue operation is underway.

NATO spokeswoman Col. Juanita Chang earlier confirmed an incident involving a helicopter from a ship under NATO command.

Chang did not reveal the nationality of the aircraft or vessels.

HMCS Fredericton left Halifax for a six-month deployment around Europe in January with one of the Royal Canadian Air Force's new Cyclones on board.
