Aida says the ship was stopped and returned to the spot off the coast of Newfoundland where the 33-year-old was believed to have entered the water.

Kueblboeck achieved short-lived fame in 2003 as a contestant on the national talent show "Germany Seeks the Superstar."

The company says an "intensive search" is underway in co-operation with Canada's coast guard.
