As they were about to conclude their day’s fishing they spotted the yacht. Out of curiosity, the men entered the boat, and what they saw their was stuff of nightmares.

They discovered a well preserved body of a man seated next to a radio telephone as if he was trying a last call.

The body turned out to be of Manfred Fritz Bajorat, a German adventurer who had been untraceable since 2009. It was also unclear how long Bajorat had been dead.

What was even more spookier was the belongings of Bajorat discovered in the boat.

Among other items there was a letter written to his wife Claudia, who died from cancer aged 53 on 2 May 2010.

‘Thirty years we’re been together on the same path. Then the power of the demons was stronger than the will to live. You’re gone. May your soul find its peace. Your Manfred,’ it read.

The duo had began their voyage around the world almost twenty years, but they had separated in 2008, and she died two years later.

Even though it is still unclear, police believe dry ocean winds, hot temperatures and the salty air helped preserve his body.

It is believed he has a daughter called Nina who works as the captain of a freight vessel.
