DETROIT — An international team of divers has discovered the wreckage of a ship that disappeared more than 100 years ago during a storm on Lake Huron.

The team discovered the J.H. Jones on July 1 in lower Georgian Bay near Lion’s Head, Ontario, The Detroit News reported. The ship had 30 people onboard when it vanished in 1906 during a storm. Only one body was found after the storm.

Researchers said multiple attempts over the decades to locate the Jones were unsuccessful. Researchers Ken Merryman, Jerry Eliason and Cris Kohl were part of the team that located the ship in July after less than two hours of searching.

“I had confidence in my research, which I began years ago,” said Kohl, who has written 16 books about Great Lake shipwrecks with his wife. “After I put it all together, I told Ken (Merryman) last April that I could take him right to that shipwreck.”
