A merchant ship that vanished in the Bermuda Triangle in 1925 has been found.

The steam-powered SS Cotopaxi went missing on November 29, 1925, after it left Charleston, South Carolina, for Havana, Cuba with 32 passengers.

The ship never reached its destination and all bodies of the passengers were never found, Fox News reported.

In a statement issued by a new Science Channel Series, marine biologist and underwater explorer Michael Barnette contacted British historian Guy Walters to help find the mysterious ship.

Walters combed through the records at the archives of Lloyd’s of London who were the insurers of the vessel.

“There he discovered something previously unknown about the SS Cotopaxi’s voyage. The ship had sent out wireless distress signals with a position on December 1st, 1925, two days after it left Charleston,” read the statement.

Another ship that had been discovered at that position 35 years ago was identified as the Bear Wreck.

Upon further scrutiny, the researchers realised that the Bear Wreck was actually the Cotopaxi.

The doomed ship had been on a routine voyage to deliver coal to Havana, Cuba when it sunk.

The discovery will be featured in the first episode of Shipwreck Secrets which airs on the Science Channel on February 9.

The Bermuda Triangle stretches across a western part of the North Atlantic between Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda.

The area, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, has claimed over 1,000 lives in the last 100 years.

At least 75 planes and hundreds of ships have gone missing at the Triangle without explanation.

The footage, which was filmed by a passenger inside the chopper, was shared on Twitter on Sunday, January 26.
