PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. - Police say the search for a little boy who went missing in Prince Albert, Sask., is now a recovery operation.

Sweetgrass Kennedy was last seen a week ago and Prince Albert police say witnesses and other evidence suggest the four-year-old fell into the North Saskatchewan River.

Hundreds of volunteers initially looked for the boy in the community.

Police later asked the volunteers to leave the search to professionals because of the dangers of the swiftly moving river.

Inspector Jason Stonechild says searchers including aircraft and a dive team have not found any trace of the boy.

Police estimate the search has covered 160 kilometres of riverbank. (CKBI, The Canadian Press)
