Searching are:

a U.S. Coast Guard HC-130 Hercules aircraft from Air Station Elizabeth City, North Carolina
a 106th Rescue Wing U.S. Air National Guard crew from Gabranski, New York
a Canadian military C-130 aircraft
the 600-foot motor vessel Bow Flora
the 672-foot motor vessel Premium Do Brasil
the 477-foot motor vessel Chem Venus
the 700-foot motor vessel Amapola

Air crews have searched a total of 2,878 square miles since the search has resumed. The square mileage for ship searches is still being determined.
Weather on scene is six-foot seas with winds at less than 10 knots.

En route are:

the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Vigorous, homeported in Cape May, New Jersey
a U.S. Air Force C-130 aircraft from Moody Air Force Base in Valdosta, Georgia
the 751-foot motor vessel AM Hamburg
the 551-foot motor vessel Independent Accord

The BBC appear to require a technical specialist:

"The coastguard said it was currently battling against six-foot seas with wind speeds of less than 18.5km per hour."

Finally a decent is effort underway - assume the UK Hercules will operate out of Graciosa / Azores (US Airbase that should have been involved at the start)
