The family of a Deer Lake Man who remains unaccounted for in Haiti say they are still hoping and praying that James W. Coates will be found alive.
It's now been five days since a magnitude-7.0 earthquake caused untold death and destruction in the Caribbean country.
Coates, who works for the United Nations, is thought to have been working in his fifth floor office at the UN building when the quake struck. The building collapsed, and dozens of UN staff, including Coates, are still missing in the rubble.
Coates, 37, has been working in Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, since September 2008.

Organizations: United Nations

Geographic location: Deer Lake, Haiti, Caribbean Port-au-Prince

    I'm fairly certain the earthquake was last Tuesday... Meaning, it was 6 days ago.
