The search for a missing boater near Prince Rupert has ended and the file has been turned over to the RCMP as a missing persons case.
The Coast Guard launched several vessels late Monday afternoon when the call came in about an overdue boat with two people on board.
Despite the rough weather, the search continued overnight and Tuesday morning one person was rescued, but there was no sign of the second person.
A Cormorant helicopter and Buffalo aircraft spent Tuesday looking for that second person but had no luck.
