After flying for 2 weeks searching over 9500 square miles, the search has been called off and DND and CASARA have returned to their respective homes, however, they did not leave empty handed. The search teams were able to locate 2 previous crash sites that were unreported (no victims in crash site), and had a report of a man finding prop pieces near Hope that turned out to be a hoax (charges pending).
