Mysterious Reappearance of SS Cotopaxi

In December 1925, a ship named SS Cotopaxi was reported to be missing when passing through the Bermuda Triangle. About 90 years later, Cuban Coast Guard declared that they had intercepted the same ship unmanned sailing in the area.

Cuban authorities said they spotted the tramp steamer on May 16 west of Havana, near a restricted military zone.  After a number of unsuccessful attempts to communicate with the crew, they managed to mobilize three patrol boats to surround the ship.

After interception, they were amazed to discover that the ship was nearly 100-years old. They even identified the steamer as the Cotopaxi, which is a famous name connected to the legend of the Bermuda Triangle.  Further search even revealed the captain’s logbook, but unfortunately, there was no information on any events that may have happened over the past 90 years.

Ship reappears in Bermuda Triangle

The logbook, which Cuban expert Rodolfo Salvador Cruz believed to be authentic, contained information about the life of the crew until December 1, 1925.

As per history, the SS Cotopaxi departed South Carolina and headed towards Havana, Cuba on November 29, 1925.  Two days later, it was reported missing along with its crew of 32 men under Captain W.J. Meyer.

This mysterious disappearance and reappearance of the ship is under thorough investigation, as announced by the Cuban authorities. General Abelardo Colomé, Vice President of Council of Ministers, said: “It is very important for us to understand what happened. Such incidents could be really bad for our economy … The time has come to solve the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle, once and for all.”
