People going missing is always mysterious ...

But one story this week is totally mind-boggling.

It's hard to go missing nowadays...

Given the fact that technology is spookily tracking our every move.

But it is possible...

Which makes missing person stories all the more mysterious!

But there is one story that's absolutely baffling the internet this week.

A missing sailor who had been presumed as dead after vanishing at sea days earlier has been discovered - alive.

What happened is a total mystery...

But the internet is loving this crazy tale.

How did this man manage to survive?

Scroll on for the whole story ...

Stuart Bee went missing off the coast of Florida on Friday, November 27th.

And, forty-three-hours later, he was found more than eighty miles from the coast clinging to his boat.

He was in a sorry state upon being discovered...

And, understandably, coastguards couldn't believe he was even alive to tell his tale.

But how did he end up stranded in the first place?

Well, a motor malfunction caused water to rush onto Bee's boat and, after he capsized, he managed to climb on top and hang on. "Saving lives at sea is our highest calling. This is a truly incredible outcome that demonstrates the bond among all mariners and our community," said Captain Mark Vlaun.

"Thank you to our mission partners that launched into action and to all who got the word out to find and rescue Mr. Bee."
