Ghost ship MV Alta washes ashore in Ireland County Cork from Bermuda

A “ghost ship” abandoned for over a year and drifting in the Atlantic finally washed ashore in Ireland amid Storm Dennis’ choppy water, the country’s coast guard says.

The MV Alta was found on the coast near Ballycotton, a small town in southern Ireland’s County Cork, with no crew on board, the Irish Coast Guard said Sunday.

The county’s local council asked the public to stay away from the vessel as crews work to determine whether it posses any environmental risk. The council said “no visible pollution” has been identified, and a team was expected to board the ship Tuesday.

The roughly 250-foot vessel was abandoned in October 2018 after the U.S. Coast Guard rescued its stranded crew that was without power, Lt. Amanda Faulkner, a public affairs officer for the U.S. Coast Guard’s 5th District, told USA TODAY.
