Yukon search for debris suspended

February 17, 2023
Ottawa, Ontario


The RCMP has decided to discontinue search efforts in the Yukon for the aerial object shot down on February 11. The highest probability area has been searched and the debris was not located.

Given the snowfall that has occurred, the decreasing probability the object will be found and the current belief the object is not tied to a scenario that justifies extraordinary search efforts, the RCMP is terminating the search.

The RCMP would like to thank the Canadian Armed Forces, RCMP members, the Yukon community and Indigenous Communities that have supported this effort.
