    Australia - Derek Batten, 56, Peter, 69, & James Tunstead, 63, April 2007

    This is an interesting story. These 3 men were on a 6 to 8 week sailing trip but never going too far from shore. Their boat was found with the sails up, motor running, laptops running, food on the table, etc. But there is no sign of the 3 men.

    The coast guard spotted the boat from a helecopter on Wednesday but didn't reach the boat until today (I don't know why).

    The boat has a shredded headsail but the weather has been calm so there isn't an explaination for that.

    This seems to answer the mystery:
