An overnight search for the five fishermen that went missing in hurricane-force winds off the coast of Nova Scotia was unsuccessful, as extensive rescue efforts have produced no sign of the crew or their boat.
Capt. Doug Keirstead of the joint search team said high winds and rough waters are hampering rescue efforts.
"The weather conditions are still quite challenging," he told CTV's Canada AM on Monday. "When we originally received the emergency locator single from the vessel on Sunday evening, we were dealing with eight- to 10-metre seas, zero visibility and hurricane force winds. So we're still dealing with, over the night hours and into this morning, six-metre seas, which is still quite rough."
