Search on for two U.S. fishermen missing in Nunavut

BAKER LAKE, Nunavut - A C-130 Hercules airplane from CFB Winnipeg is part of the search for two U.S. fishermen missing on a lake in Nunavut.

An official at the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre at CFB Trenton in Ontario says a call came into the centre from emergency officials in Baker Lake.

A small fishing charter airplane was to have picked up the two men on Monday at nearby Dubawnt Lake.

Their boat was found out of gas and still full of fishing gear, but there was no sign of the men — a father in his 70s and his son in his 40s.

Their names and hometowns aren't available.
