Crew of fishing boat missing in turbulent waters off Nova Scotia

Five crew members and a fishing vessel are missing off the coast of Nova Scotia, a Canadian official said Monday.

The Miss Ally sent out an emergency beacon about 76 miles (123 kilometers) southeast of Liverpool, Nova Scotia, Captain Doug Keirstead of Joint Task Force Atlantic said.

Coast Guard units from Canada and the United States are searching for the missing boat, which disappeared late Sunday in an area hit by 30-foot seas and wind that exceeded 74 mph (119 kph).

An empty life raft was found Monday morning, Keirstead said.

The Miss Ally was registered in Shelburne, Novia Scotia.

    Please pray for these men & their families.
    "They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep. For He commands, and raises the stormy wind, which lifts up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit's end. Then they cry to the LORD in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses. He makes the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so He brings them to their desired haven. Oh that men would praise the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! Let them exalt Him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders."
    -Psalms 107:23
