    Loss of Ship In Japan

    This is but one small item in the tragic news out of Japan over these past few days. It has been reported that a small ship carrying 100 plus people disappeared in the earthquake and tsunami. Has anyone heard anything else about this ship?? My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Japan.

      It looks like we have some good news regarding the missing ship. It looks like she was found, and all aboard her were winched to safety.

      Reported in this news article.

      Edit: And in this next article they also report a ship being found. The reporter of this article asks whether it is the same ship that was reported missing early on in the disaster. I think the question is being asked because initial reports stated that 100 people were aboard a missing ship, but this one only had 81 persons aboard.

      I think the reporter answers his own question, in the report he says that the found ship belonged to a shipyard. And if you remember, when the ship was first reported missing, the news stations said that the ship was carrying shipyard workers. So i think this must be the correct ship, just the numbers of people on board her were not reported correctly to start with.

        Thank all powers in charge! That is good news after all. But the tragedy in Japan is so hard to comprehend.
