MV Alta was abandoned in September 2018. It is unclear what happened to the ship since then.



The derelict cargo ship, dubbed the "ghost ship" by British media, was shipped off storm Dennis by Ireland on Sunday, among others The Guardian reported. The 77-meter MV Alta landed near the Ballycotton fishing village in Cork County.

- Cork County Council is asking the public to stay out of the wreck because it is located on a dangerous and inaccessible beach and is unstable, the council said in a news release.

The MV Alta was built in 1976. The Tanzanian-flagged ship made headlines in September 2018 when the United States Coast Guard rescued a crew of 10 people at 2,220 kilometers from Bermuda, the Independent reports.

At the time, the ship was on its way from Greece to Haiti when it went wrong. The crew was unable to rectify the fault and the Coast Guard was called upon to assist.

There is no certainty as to what happened to the ship after the crew was rescued. According to various information, the ship would have been towed to Guyana where it would have been hijacked.

The British Navy ship HMS Protector found the vessel in August 2019 on the Atlantic. It is believed to have later drifted past Africa and Spain to Ireland.
