Shipwreck hunters are searching for two French warships which vanished in the Great Lake in 1918.

Ninety years after their disappearance in a Lake Superior blizzard, shipwreck hunters are trying to find two French warships that vanished without a trace, taking two Canadian Great Lakes captains and 78 French sailors with them.

The wrecks of the Inkerman and Cerisoles, newly built at the Canada Car foundry in what was then called Fort William, Ont., caused the greatest single loss of life in a marine accident on Lake Superior.

No one knows what happened to the 50-metre ships and their crews after they left Thunder Bay in late November 1918.
