The story of this ship is one of the most mysterious so far. It was drifting elsewhere in the Atlantic Ocean. The ship was found intact on December 4, 1872, without a single scratch, but its crew has not been found to this day.

Following the disappearance, several legends emerged that it was a criminal hand, an alien abduction or the attack of a huge squid.
It is a disturbing mystery triangle associated with the American white oak schooner Ellen Austin. In 1881, Ellen Austin, 210 feet long, was on her way to New York from London, but things changed when she came across an abandoned ship near the Bermuda Triangle.
