Search scaled back

The search for three people who have been missing since their boat sank early Friday morning is being scaled back.

In a statement on social media, the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Victoria says the search has been turned over to the RCMP as a missing persons case.

The JRCC says there were five people aboard the open, six-metre boat that sank without a mayday call.

One person was found in the water south of Felice Island, while a second swam ashore to Duffin Cove.

Both were taken to hospital.
