A Russian ghost ship that has been drifting around in the Atlantic Ocean after a tow line snapped has not been spotted in months, leaving some to speculate that it may be resting at the bottom of the ocean, leaking toxic waste.

The Canadian Coast Guard has not received any reported sightings of the MV Lyubov Orlova since March 12, 2013. The Russian-built Lyubov Orlova left Canada bound for a scrapyard in the Dominican Republic on Jan. 23. The following day, in rough seas,   the tow line snapped and the ship was abandoned, dead and adrift. The ship posed a navigational hazard because it did not have any operational navigation equipment to warn other ships in the area.
