UPDATE: Search continues over Lake Huron for unidentified flying object

An unidentified object shot down by a U.S. jet through NORAD over Lake Huron on Sunday, February 11th (2023) has, as yet, not been found.

In a media conference yesterday, February 14th, the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, Joyce Murray said that, “… the Canadian Coast Guard ship the Griffon is in the search zone area and the Samuel Risley on the way as well.  The Samuel Risley has underwater equipment that can assist with the search.”

Search pattern along the shoreline

Two Canadian helicopters also flew patterns along the shoreline of Lake Huron from Kincardine to Sauble Beach.

The object was one of four shot down by the U.S. military over North America in the past eight days.  The first over the Atlantic off the South Carolina coast was deemed a Chinese surveillance balloon by the U.S. government as  debris was gathered.



According to the White House in a media conference yesterday, China does have a high-altitude balloon surveillance system that collects “limited information” according to U.S. Admiral John Kirby.

The second object over Alaska and the third over the Yukon have not, as yet, been recovered due to terrain and weather conditions.

MP Alex Ruff of Bruce-Grey Owen Sound riding and MPs from jurisdictions along with shoreline, also issued a joint statement yesterday saying that that public would be kept  informed as information becomes available.
