DULUTH, Minn. (AP) -- Video taken more than 500 feet down in Lake Superior confirms a shipwreck is the long-lost freighter Henry B. Smith.
Shipwreck hunters located the wreck in May about 30 miles north of Marquette, Mich. They had little doubt then that they had found the Smith, which vanished in a storm in 1913.
But the Duluth News Tribune reports the group wasn't able to get video showing the ship's name until a return trip to the site last week.
The 525-foot Henry B. Smith sank in the massive Great Lakes Storm of November 1913, after it and its crew of 25 ventured out from Marquette during a lull. The storm kicked up again and the freighter vanished, leaving scattered wreckage and just two bodies along the shores of Lake Superior.
