On the morning of April 15, 2016, a cargo vessel called the Kenny Chesney yachting yacht collided with a small fishing vessel off the coast of the northern New South Wales town of Nelson.
The wreck caused major damage to the vessel’s hull and two of its eight crew members were killed.
Four other crew members survived the collision.
But that’s not all.
One of the eight crew had an old video game controller that was found on the yacht.
So the crew set out to find it, and in a desperate search they located the controller in the cabin of the yacht, and then set out on a quest to find the missing game controller, with the hope of reuniting the missing crew members.
In early May, the team made a daring attempt to find their missing friend, but the search went awry.
The yacht, named the Garry Chesney, was lost on its maiden voyage, and its crew members never made it home.
After more than a year, the crew members are still missing.
They were last seen in the area of the Murray River on the north-east coast of New South.
The last time they were seen alive was in mid-June.
The search continues, and they’re hopeful someone will be found.
The search is being supported by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), with support from the Maritime Safety Authority of New Zealand.
