Thumbs down Abandoned Baja found last night floating

Man this doesn't look good. While one of my captains were on patrol last night he found an abandoned / sinking 25 Baja. Lanyard gone - steering wheel broken in half - in gear - throttle wide open and the key was found floating near the boat. Also his wallet - cell phone and car keys were in the glove box. We're raising the boat today and I'll keep you posted. I hope this guy is found and everyone is ok but it doesn't look good. BH

That's spooky. I hope the best for the operator, but I especially hope for the best of any passengers that potentially could've been aboard. They have no control...

What I cannot seem to understand is how the boat keys got out of the ignition and into the water? Very odd indeed.

Maybe somebody wanted to dissappear. Figured this would work well but went too far by removing the keys. Who knows. Maybe once the details all come out.
