WOODS HARBOUR, Nova Scotia, Feb. 24 (UPI) -- The search for five crew members of the Miss Ally, which capsized off the coast of Nova Scotia, was called off Sunday, authorities said.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the search for the commercial fishing boat's crew was suspended indefinitely after photos taken by the navy's remote underwater vehicle confirmed there were no bodies in the overturned and heavily damaged boat, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported.

A private dive team searched the wreck Saturday with the same results.

The 44-foot boat, based out of Woods Harbour, capsized during a ferocious storm the night of Feb. 17.

A Baptist church in Woods Harbour filled with congregation members Sunday morning for a service for the missing crew members, the CBC said.
