Matching VbCrLf with RegEx

Hello Experts,

I could use some help with Regular Expressions. My problem is easy to explain:

Normally the pattern I am trying to match looks like this:

CASUALTY/INITIAL-17051/STBD FIN STAB OVERHEATS/EIC:TR00000/CAT:2//

The match syntax looks like this:
(CASUALTY.*\/.*)\/\/
Which returns:
CASUALTY/INITIAL-17051/STBD FIN STAB OVERHEATS/EIC:TR00000/CAT:2

The problem is that sometimes the message comes in with a VbCrLf somewhere in the string and it returns a null.

I tried to but \r\n in various places but nothing seems to work. Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated!
