"SNIP............................................


Police say they will work night and day to find two workers presumed to be buried under rubble after a landslide at a quarry near l'Épiphanie, Que., 50 kilometres north of Montreal.

Repentigny police Sgt. Bruno Marier said between 60 and 80 workers continue searching the grounds in hopes of finding the two missing people.

Marier said the crews faced challenges when trying to bring equipment down the 100-metre-deep quarry. He said a loader had been brought on site safely and will be used to excavate.

Earlier this afternoon, a dog from the K-9 unit reportedly discovered four areas of interest. Provincial police said searches yielded no results.

1. They have a crane on site so that a backhoe could be lowered into the quarry.

Vibes to the two missing workers.
