Australian rescue workers from Sydney found a puzzling scene Friday on a catamaran spotted drifting off the Great Barrier Reef: sails up, engines running and food on the table, but no crew.
Officials launched a search for the three men missing from the Kaz II, which rescuers have already dubbed "the ghost yacht." Nine planes and two helicopters were flying over an area about 700 nautical miles long, along with four volunteer rescue boats, police and maritime officials said.
Authorities are still unable to explain what happened to the crew of a yacht found drifting off the north Queensland coast earlier this week.
An air and sea search for the three men from Western Australia has been called off after expert advice that the men could not have survived more than six days in the water.
The catamaran, named Kaz II, was found abandoned on Wednesday on the outer Barrier Reef in far north Queensland.

This is indeed a little creepy. Where did everybody go? My first thought was pirates. But nothing of value was taken.
The creepiest part is that the food was on the table ready to be eaten.
Maybe some sort of a prank?
