Crewless ship washes ashore in Liberia

A Panama-flagged product tanker identified as Tamaya 1 has beached ashore near Robertsport, northern Liberia coast, according the Liberia Maritime Authority.

The 1980-built 1,441 DWT ship washed ashore on Wednesday without anybody on board.

It is not known what happened to the crew, however certain reports have linked the crew’s disappearance with a potential pirate attack.

Investigation is underway by the authorities.

Based on the ship’s latest AIS data dating back to April 22, the tanker was last underway toward the port of Dakar, Senegal.
