Hoping To Find The Ghost Refugee Boat

The Ghost boat investigation is a project looking into a group of at least 243 refugees who disappeared with out a trace in the summer of 2014, the missing group involves more people than the famous 239 passengers who disappeared on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. None of the missing people have contacted their family members and there have been no bodies found, or wreckage of any kind. One theory is that a people smuggling boat off the coast of Libya, intending to sail to Italy, disappeared without trace. A lack of wreckage is highly unusual for such a large water craft. Reporter Eric Reidy has been investigating the case by blogging and using crowd sourcing. Bobbie Johnson, a senior editor at Medium, took Reidy's articles and created the Ghost Boat project to help track the missing group of "Ghost boat" refugees. As of December 2015 no trace of the passengers has been found.
