Lost Franklin expedition ships remain unfound

Erebus and Terror vanished in the High Arctic more than 160 years ago, along with the famous British explorer and 128 crew.
This was the third year of a three-year-program to find Erebus and Terror, but searches for the two ships and remnants of Franklin’s failed 1845 expedition began almost immediately after he disappeared.
Marc-Andre Bernier, Parks Canada’s chief of underwater archeology, says it is too soon to say whether the search program might be extended beyond this year.
