CENTRAL NEW YORK -- The search for debris from the Reaper drone that crashed into Lake Ontario has been put on hold.

Crews briefly searched Montario Point Road area in Mannsville Saturday morning but stopped, and officials say they do not plan to conduct a search Sunday.

The drone went down about 20 miles northeast of the port of Oswego Tuesday, and some debris was found Thursday and Friday.

Officials with the Air National Guard's 174th Attack Wing say two separate reports are being put together.

An internal report will focus on the cause and measures to prevent a similar incident. An Accident Investigation Board will release a public report.
