The Lake Michigan Triangle - sometimes referred to as the #MichiganTriangle - spans from #Manitowoc, #Wisconsin, to #Ludington, #Michigan, and south to #BentonHarbor.
The triangle has accounted for numerous #mysteriousevents, beginning in 1891 , when a schooner named the Thomas Hume set off across Lake Michigan for lumber.
The Hume disappeared, along with its crew of seven sailors. Not even a trace of the boat was ever found.
#Strangeevents continued occurring. Here are some of the notable cases:
The Rosa Belle ship mystery
In 1921, 11 people inside the Rosa Belle ship disappeared and their ship was found overturned in Lake Michigan.
The ship had been damaged in a collision, but no other ship had reported an accident and no other wreck was ever found.
Disappearance of Captain Donner
The bizarre case of #CaptainGeorgeRDonner is one of the more mysterious triangle cases.
On April 28, 1937, Captain Donner vanished from his cabin , after guiding his ship through icy waters.
The Captain went to his cabin to rest, and about three hours later, a crew member went to alert him that they were nearing the port.
