Police say a search of a waterfront area of Whitby, Ont., on Monday turned up no trace of a 52-year-old high school teacher who disappeared three weeks ago.

Durham regional police conducted Monday’s search with an underwater robot on loan from the Toronto police marine unit.

The robot was remote-controlled by police from the shore and no vessels were on the water.

Investigators said Monday there have been no new developments in the case and the water search was a routine operation to explore all investigative options.

Police suspended a week-long ground search involving ground, air, canine units, ATVs and a trained volunteer search team, about a week after Boucher disappeared.
