According to authorities, Canada has reportedly halted the hunt for debris from an unusual flying object shot down over Lake Huron.
The announcement was made public by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) on Thursday.
“After conducting an extensive search in the Lake Huron area with the assistance of the Canadian Coast Guard and other domestic and international partners, a decision was reached to suspend the search due to several factors including deteriorating weather and the low probability of recovery,” a statement from the RCMP read.
On Sunday, a U.S. fighter jet shot down the UFO over Lake Huron, which lies between Michigan and Canada.
According to US and Canadian sources, the UFO was one of three brought down by the US military over North America in the last week due to fears that they were endangering civilian aircraft and maybe conducting surveillance.
According to White House national security spokesperson John Kirby, wreckage from the UFO shot down over Lake Huron is reported to have fallen on the Canadian side of the lake in what is likely extremely deep water.
According to the Pentagon, the UFO shot down above Lake Huron seemed to be octagonal with strings attached, although it remains unclear exactly what the object in question actually was or its origin.
The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, stated on Tuesday that one missile fired by a US fighter jet missed the UFO above Lake Huron and fell “harmlessly” in the lake. The airborne item was taken down by a second missile fired by an F-16.
