On Saturday morning, a helicopter went down in the Yukon River near Carmacks.
At approximately 7:11 a.m., Carmacks RCMP was notified of the crash.
Police attended the scene with search and rescue personnel, Emergency Medical Services and volunteer firefighters.
The RCMP determined a lone pilot had crashed in the river shortly after taking off from the TransNorth helicopter pad just north of Carmacks.
On Saturday, a search of the river recovered the bottom portion of the helicopter, including the skids, said Carmacks RCMP Cpl. Wayne Gork.
Sunday, search and rescue crews from Faro, Carmacks and Whitehorse, as well as additional Whitehorse RCMP, continued to search the river.
“We only found smaller pieces of debris,” said Gork.
“We’re still looking for other parts of the craft and the pilot.”
The crash is being investigated by the Transportation Safety Board of Canada, the Yukon Coroner’s Service, and the RCMP.
