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.
