A website that tracks boats by GPS shows that an American yacht mysteriously destroyed during a Pacific Ocean race left a track landing on the rocky shore of an island off Mexico's northern coast.
The GPS track potentially undercuts the theory of a collision with a ship.
A U.S. Coast Guard spokesman said Tuesday that investigators have not recovered the GPS device from the yacht but that they would consider the coordinates it recorded.
Tracking information shows the yacht landing on Mexico's Coronado Islands about 1:30 a.m. PDT Saturday at a speed of about 6 knots.
Michael Patton, a spokesman for the yacht owner's family, says it shows the device landed on the rocks but not necessarily the boat.
Three members of the boat's crew were found dead and the fourth remains missing.
