Mobile call ends search for missing boat passengers – ‘I hope we find them’
Boat owner and search and rescue captain William “Bear" Smith has confirmed that the search has been called off in regard to a missing commercial craft.
The search for the six-metre (20-foot) long (2.5 m) vessel is being performed by Canad카지노 사이트ian and Canadian-led teams after a helicopter, which is also helping in the operation, reportedly “found no signs of life" in the area.
‘She’s in trouble’
Smith, who spoke to CBC news, said the search was expected to last about 20 hours until the search was suspended due to deteriorating weather conditions.
“The weather has deteriorated considerably to the point where we’ve been unable to make a full recovery, and I hope we find them," Smith said.

“It’s sad but unfortunately we have not been able to find the vessel, as that’s our goal… Our goal is to identify the passengers."
“This is not a commercial, there were no people on board," Smith said. “We’ve had four crew members on board."
An air search in the area also began on Tuesday morning, with a helicopter spotted “close enough" to the search area but unable to land because of poor visibility.

All seven bodies have been taken to the St. Joseph’s Hospital in Quebec City.
