Halifax District RCMP have concluded their water search for a man swept off the rocks at Peggys Cove on Wednesday.
Members of the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team were searching today in an effort to locate 25-year-old James Donald Quattrocchi of Smith’s Falls, Ontario.
At approximately 3 p.m., the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team ended the search. They were not able to locate the man’s body. The team battled rough sea conditions and large swells in the days that followed the incident.
Halifax District RCMP asks the public to contact Tantallon detachment should they be in the Peggys Cove area and locate items that may assist with the missing person investigation.
The RCMP would like to thank the first responders and the Joint Rescue Coordination (JRCC) who joined in search efforts Wednesday and provided air support and three Coast Guard vessels.
Our thoughts are with James’ family and friends at this difficult time.
