"During the past century more than 50 ships and 20 aircraft sailed into oblivion in the area known as the Devil's Triangle, Bermuda Triangle, Hoodoo Sea, or a host of other names. Exactly what happened to the ships and aircraft is not known. Most disappeared without a trace. Few distress calls and little, if any, debris signaled their disappearance."

Coast guard believes cargo ship missing in the Bermuda Triangle sank during hurricane

"For four days, the U.S. Coast Guard has been searching for El Faro. Flying through the hurricane to search for the ship, Coast Guard planes have scoured more than 70,000 square nautical miles (240,093 square kilometres) for the boat. They have spotted life rings, debris and an oil slick near El Faro's last known location - but no signs of the ship, or of survivors."

"All available facilities in the immediate area were used in an effort to locate the missing aircraft and help them return to base. These efforts were not successful. No trace of the aircraft was ever found even though an extensive search operation was conducted until the evening of 10 December 1945, when weather conditions deteriorated to the point where further efforts became unduly hazardous."
