While the search continues for four men and a woman feared dead off the NSW coast, one male has been confirmed by the Australian Defence Force as Warrant Officer Gregory Miller.

Defence media said they are engaging with authorities to help recovery efforts but also confirmed that Warrant Officer Miller was not on duty at the time of the accident.

It is understood the helicopter they were in was flying from Coffs Harbour to Bankstown when it disappeared off the coast north of Newcastle without issuing a mayday call about 6.15pm on Friday.

Another of the missing is believed to be the pilot and owner of the operating company, Brisbane Helicopters, David Kerr.

Weather conditions in the area at the time the helicopter went missing were poor, with strong winds and reduced visibility.

The helicopter is believed to be a former military Bell UH-1H helicopter, known as a "Huey".

Air traffic control indicated that the helicopter was rapidly losing altitude when contact was lost.

There were no detected emergency beacon signals or mayday calls.

Rough weather was continuing to hamper a recovery mission for the helicopter yesterday, making it difficult for police divers, who will try again today.
