HALIFAX, N.S.- Search and rescue crews will not resume a search this morning for a reported plane crash in the Cumberland Bay area of Grand Lake.  

A lack of evidence has led to a search being called off for a reported plane crash, north of Saint John.

Major Paul Doucette, with the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Halifax, confirms after an extensive air and water search yesterday, they were not able to find any evidence to support the claims of a crash.

Doucette encourages the public to stay engaged in their surroundings. "Even though sometimes it may not turn out to be the case, if the public does see something very unusual it doesn't hurt to call", says Doucette. "The caller may be right. It could save lives in the outset".

The decision to call off the search was made late last night.

Firefighters from Sussex and Oromocto joined Fredericton Police and RCMP to try and find signs of any wreckage on Thursday afternoon.
