RCMP update on search for missing fishermen

The RCMP is updating on the search for the five missing fishermen from the Chief Williams Saulis fishing vessel.

Yesterday, the RCMP, in partnership​ with the Canadian Coast Guard who provided a platform, and Canada Border Services Agency providing a Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) were out on the water. The search did not locate the missing vessel.

Due to unfavourable and deteriorating conditions, there is no search activity today.

Expectations are to return to the water tomorrow January 3 to resume the search weather and water conditions permitting.

The Nova Scotia RCMP will be providing the public with updates and information as the search for the missing fishermen continues.
