RCMP call off search for missing snowmobiler Tom Newman
Police on the Northern Peninsula have ended their search for Tom Newman, who went missing while on a snowmobile last weekend.
Newman, 59, went out on his Yamaha snowmobile around midnight last Saturday.
The search had been changed from a rescue to a recovery effort earlier this week, after an intensive search involving air and ground crews led police to believe that Newman had gone into the water in the Beaver Cove area.
A diving team was brought in, but found no sign of Newman's body.
His snowmobile was located and retrieved from Chimney Bay.
