The United States on Friday ended its search for the remains of unidentified objects it shot down over Alaska and Lake Huron amid adverse conditions making the search more difficult.

Since the Feb. 4 downing of a suspected Chinese spy balloon that authorities recovered this week, U.S. forces have shot down three other unidentified objects over the U.S. and Canada, which President Joe Biden said may have been research balloons, according to the New York Times.

The search for a third object shot down over Canada is still ongoing.

Authorities have indicated that the three more recently shot down objects may have belonged to private companies or research institutions, the outlet noted.

White House advisor John Kirby has indicated that the objects' remains might never be recovered.
