Mysterious disappearances

A modern Marie Celeste mystery has occurred Down Under.

"The engine was running, the computers were running, there was a laptop set up on the table which was running, the radio was working... and there was food and utensils set on the table ready to eat," said Jon Hall, a spokesman for Queensland's Emergency Management office.

"It was a bit strange," he added.
Edit: In response to a point raised by k425
Mary Celeste - the actual original famous abandoned ship
Marie Céleste - Arthur Conan Doyle's upsexed version with the details such as the abandoned meal
Marie Celeste - a confusion of the two
