Sunken boat found

A boat that went down off Vancouver Island has been found, but police say the search continues for three missing fishermen.

RCMP say in a news release that an underwater dive team has recovered the vessel from waters near Tofino, B.C., after it sank early Friday morning.

Police have said there were five people aboard the six-metre tin boat that went down without a mayday call.

One person was rescued from the water while another swam to shore.

Mounties say the vessel is being held for investigation.

A search for the missing men has been scaled back and RCMP say strong tidal currents in the area have made search efforts difficult.
