The Royal Canadian Air Force says it will spend one final day searching for a missing Quebec businessman and his son before handing the case over to the provincial police.
Stephane Roy and his 14-year-old son Justin were reported missing on July 11 after failing to return home from a fishing trip in Lac de la Bidiere, a remote area in the upper Laurentians regions west of La Tuque, Que.
The pair were aboard Roy s Robinson R44 helicopter.
A statement from the air force today says it will make the "difficult decision" to reduce its search operations and relinquish the case to the provincial police as a missing persons investigation.
Roy is the founder and owner of Les Serres Sagami Inc., which produces greenhouse-grown tomatoes and other produce under the Sagami and Savoura brands.
