Officials conducted “a lengthy aerial search” that was made difficult by inclement weather and deep snow, police said.

On Saturday, a civilian helicopter and an OPP helicopter were doing additional searches in “areas of interest” at Lake Superior Provincial Park, police said.

At around 5 p.m., a crash site was located near Old Woman Bay.

OPP said two people were onboard the aircraft, both of whom died.
