Parents, 5 kids missing in Canadian Arctic
by UPI

TRENTON, Ontario -- The Canadian military is being hampered by severe weather in its search for a couple and their five children who have been missing in the Arctic since Thursday.

Officials at Canadian Forces Base Trenton, Ontario, said the unidentified family set out Thursday with the parents on a snowmobile pulling their five children on a sled. Two of the children were said to be infants and the others all under 10, the Canwest News Service reported.

They left a tiny village northeast of Rankin Inlet in Nunavut Thursday and were expected in Hall Beach, 140 miles northeast by Saturday, officials said.

Military aircraft have been unable to fly because of freezing weather and low clouds but searchers have been out on snowmobiles, officials said.

Last November, an Arctic couple and their 4-year-old son disappeared for more than a week but survived by building an igloo and hunting, the report said.
