Bermuda Triangle: Ship Reappears 90 Years After Going Missing?

Tuesday, February 16, 2016 |
There are millions of posts on internet daily and of course, a portion of them is false and a portion of them, like the post below, you just can't know if it is true or false. When we came across this article, we couldn't but wonder for its validity. However, what if it is true? Yes, it seems outrageous but we are going to cite the facts and you are free to make your own conclusions.

The Cuban Coast Guard announced a few months ago, that they had intercepted an unmanned ship heading for the island, which is presumed to be the SS Cotopaxi, a tramp steamer which vanished in December 1925 and has since been connected to the legend of the Bermuda Triangle.


The Cuban authorities spotted the ship for the first time on May 16 2015, near a restricted military zone, west of Havana. They made many unsuccessful attempts to communicate with the crew, and finally mobilized three patrol boats to intercept it.

When they reached it, they were surprised to find that the ship was actually a nearly 100-year old steamer identified as the Cotopaxi, a name famously associated with the legend of the Bermuda Triangle. There was no one on board and the ship seemed to have been abandoned for decades, suggesting that this could actually be the tramp freighter that disappeared in 1925.

An exhaustive search of the ship led to the discovery of the captain’s logbook. It was, indeed, associated with the Clinchfield Navigation Company, the owners of the SS Cotopaxi, but hasn’t brought any clue concerning what happened to the ship over the last 90 years.


On 29 November 1925, the SS Cotopaxi departed Charleston, South Carolina, and headed towards Havana, Cuba. The ship had a crew of 32 men, under the command of Captain W. J. Meyer, and was carrying a cargo of 2340 tons of coal. It was reported missing two days later, and was unheard of for almost 90 years.

The Vice President of Council of Ministers, General Abelardo Colomé, announced that the Cuban authorities were going to conduct a thorough investigation to elucidate the mystery of the ship’s disappearance and reappearance.

“It is very important for us to understand what happened” says General Colomé. “Such incidents could be really bad for our economy, so want to make sure that this kind of disappearance doesn't happen again. The time has come to solve the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle, once and for all.”


The Bermuda Triangle is a vaguely defined region covering the area between Miami, Puerto Rico and Bermuda, where dozens of ships and planes have disappeared during the years under mysterious circumstances. Popular culture has attributed many of the disappearances to paranormal and supernatural phenomena, or to the activity of extraterrestrial beings. One explanation, even pins the blame on leftover technology from the mythical lost continent of Atlantis.

Despite the popularity of all these strange theories, most scientists don’t even recognize the existence of the Bermuda Triangle, and blame human mistakes and natural phenomena for the abnormalities. However, the potential reappearance of the SS Cotopaxi could push some experts to reconsider their view on the subject.
