Search On In Bay Of Fundy For Missing Fishing Boat

The search is on over a large area of the bay of Fundy for a fishing vessel that did not return last night.The name of the vessel has not been released but two people are on board. Lt Edward Stansfield tells CHSJ News the boat spent the day fishing for scallops and a Hercules and Cormorant have been sent from Greenwood to find it. The search will intensify at daylight this morning.
Lt Stansfield was unsure where the vessel sails out of but we have been told the whole of White Head and Grand Manan is on pins and needles awaiting further word. Lt Stansfield could not confirm whether fish crates were seen bobbing in the sea.
