Poor weather conditions lead to suspension of search for five missing Nova Scotia fishermen for a second day

BY , Dec 18, 2020 9:26 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Poor weather conditions have led the RCMP to suspend the ground search for five missing Nova Scotia fishermen for a second day.

But they will search the Bay of Fundy shoreline using a helicopter from the province's Department of Lands and Forestry.

The 15-metre scallop dragger Chief William Saulis had six fishermen aboard when it is believed to have capsized in three-metre waves near Delaps Cove on Tuesday morning.

The company that owns and operates the boat, Yarmouth Sea Products, has said the crew did not issue a distress call and it appears the vessel capsized, with its automatic emergency locator beacon alerting authorities just before 6 a.m.

One man's body was found late that night.

The boat has yet to be found.
