Toronto Police have stood down in the search for missing Whitby high school teacher.
Officers had confirmed that equipment belonging to the Marine Unit was dispatched to Whitby to assist Durham Regional Police in the search for 52-year old Jeffrey Boucher.
The popular Bowmanville High School business teacher went missing on January 13th.
They were to scan the waters around Whitby Pier, along the shore of Lake Ontario.
Officials with Durham Regional Police say the search had been planned for several days and that no new leads on Boucher's whereabouts have been discovered.
But the cold weather, along with high winds and poor ground conditions forced Toronto Police to call off the search on Friday morning.
They say they will resume next week.
