Recovery mission continues for Darryl Auksaq of Igloolik
Igloolik searchers are still looking for the body of 16-year-old Darryl Auksaq.
He was last seen starting up a motor on a boat August 5. That same day, the boat was seen spinning in circles with no passenger.
Searchers have scoured the water near the community but, so far they've turned up nothing.
“Up to now we have not found the body, and we’ve been working really hard with countless numbers of boats on the shore,” says David Akeearok, a member of the local search and rescue group. “We have searchers day and night searching in teams.”
Searchers have also been looking underwater.
Akeearok says they'll have another meeting today to determine the next course of action.
The searchers believe the body is somewhere in the water.
