OSWEGO, N.Y. — New York National Guard officials say Navy divers have suspended their search for an unmanned military aircraft that crashed into Lake Ontario last month.

Guard spokesman Eric Durr says Wednesday that the recovery effort has been placed on hold until the spring because of rough conditions on the lake.

The search for the multimillion-dollar MQ-9 Reaper began after it crashed into the eastern end of the lake after taking off Nov. 12 from the airfield at Fort Drum in northern New York. The drone is one of several flown by the Air Guard’s Syracuse-based 174th Attack Wing.

Pieces of the drone later washed ashore about 12 miles east of where the craft crashed.

The Air Force is investigating the cause of the crash.
