A mysterious ghost ship has run aground on the coast of Myanmar with no crew, or captain onboard.

According to the Associated Press, fishermen spotted the eerie container vessel floating off the coast of Myanmar before it ran aground on a sandbar. Once onboard, a team investigating the large cargo ship found it completely empty.

“No crew or cargo was found on the ship. It was quite puzzling how such a big ship turned up in our waters,” U Ne Win Yangon, regional parliament MP for Thongwa, told the Myanmar Times.

Fortunately, the country’s navy seem to have solved the problem of the ghost ship. The empty cargo ship was being towed to a ship-breaking plant in Bangladesh when severe weather caused it to detach from its tugboat earlier in the week.
