One of the first ships to explore the great lakes may have been found. Le Griffon also known as The Griffin set sail exploring Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Lake Michigan in the 17th century hoping to find the northwest passage.

In 1679 the ship vanished and now has may have been found at the bottom of Lake Michigan. According to the Examiner, “This debris field was found in about 50 feet of water and to Steve Libert, who is the shipwreck searcher to find these debris along with his crew, this looks promising. What Libert believes to be the Griffin's wreck was found about 120 feet away from where a wooden slab protruding out of the water was removed last year by another group of explorers.”

A couple more dives and a piece of Michigan history could be secured for all.
