Container may be from missing ship

The owner of the missing cargo ship says a contracted tugboat and another of its ships have found a container that appears to be from the El Faro.
    
But Tim Nolan, president of TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico, says in a statement "there has been no sighting of the El Faro or any life boats."
    
The U.S. Coast Guard said early Sunday afternoon that its aircrews have spotted "life jackets, life rings, containers and an oil sheen" in the sprawling search area. But they have not yet been able to confirm whether the debris and oil is from the 790-foot El Faro.
    
On Saturday, the Coast Guard said it located an orange life ring from the missing cargo ship.
    
The ship will 33 people aboard has not been heard from since it lost power days ago and was taking on water in fierce seas churned up by Hurricane Joaquin.
