RCMP calls off search for sunken scallop dragger in the Bay of Fundy

The RCMP is calling off its search for the Chief Willian Saulis, a scallop dragger that sank in the Bay of Fundy in mid-December with a crew of six. Just last weekend video images of the boat emerged from a remotely operated underwater vehicle, or ROV, two kilometres off Delap's Cove and about 60 metres under the surface.

RCAF search and rescue aircraft and Canadian Coast Guard boats have been dispatched as well. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Andrew Vaughan
