"It was the view that the ship could have been towed by another ship after two cables ... were found at its head", the Navy said in a post on social media.

After almost a decade lost at sea the 'Sam Ratulangi PB 1600, ' finally ran aground on a sandbar approximately seven miles (11km) off the coast of Thama Seitta village of this week.

Myanmar officials investigating a "ghost ship" found mysteriously drifting near the Yangon region this week have found the answer to its fate. According to representatives of local authorities, the crew abandoned him recently.

Sheriff: Family's kayak capsizes, father and 3 children die
The body of nine-year-old Krya was located by National Park authorities on the shore of Michigan Island the following morning. The Coast Guard issued an emergency broadcast to all boats in the area asking them to divert to where the kayak had capsized.

After questioning Independence's 13 Indonesian crew members, it was found that it had been towing the cargo ship since 13 August, but after the cables broke they made a decision to abandon it. They say the container vessel was being towed by a tugboat.

According to the Marine Traffic website, which lists the movements of ships around the globe, the vessel was built in 2001 and had a deadweight of 26,500 tonnes. They now know that the crew left the ship over bad weather in the area.

Authorities have continued their investigation but now have an idea on what happened.

The country's navy said the empty cargo ship was being towed to a ship-breaking plant in Bangladesh when severe weather on caused it to become detached.

Bangladesh has a large ship-breaking industry - with hundreds of old commercial vessels dismantled in Chittagong each year.
