Ship with treasure found at sea

A British ship laden with precious treasure has been reportedly found off the coast of Guyana. The ship, which sunk in 1942, was spotted by the American Sub Sea Research Company, which specializes in undersea research and surfacing of valuable remainder of shipwrecks, the Maritime Bulletin stated.
`The Blue Baron`, as the ship has been nicknamed, apparently sunk with gold, platinum, and diamonds worth 2,600 million pounds sterling. It is about 250 meters below the sea.
It is believed the ship was scuttled by a German U-87 submarine about 40 miles from the coast of Guyana, where it had stopped over.
