Ghost yacht found adrift at sea

<  Ghost yacht found adrift at sea

From Australia’s Courier-Mail:

A GHOST yacht found drifting off the north Queensland coast had computers running and even food on a table ready to eat – but no crew, puzzled emergency services say.

The 12-metre catamaran was first spotted by a coastwatch aircraft on Wednesday near the outer Great Barrier Reef after leaving Airlie Beach on Sunday.
A rescue helicopter identified the yacht overnight and confirmed there was no one aboard.

Police have confirmed three men are missing.

Emergency Management Queensland spokesman Jon Hall said crews were puzzled by what they found because “everything appeared normal”.
