|Lighthouse in stormy landscape, Shuttershock
On December 15th, 1990, a ship named Archtor set sail on a voyage to Leith from Philadelphia when noticing something was wrong. The Archtor passed the lighthouse on the Flannan Isles and noticed the light was off. After docking in Leith three days later, the news passed on the Northern Lighthouse Board that something was amiss in Flannan.
The Board dispatched the lighthouse relief tender ship Hesperus to investigate. Arriving at the island, the ship's captain, Jim Harvie, sounded his horn and sent up a flare, hoping to alert the three lighthouse keepers. There was no response to the sound or flare. When they disembarked from the ship, relief lighthouse keeper Joseph Moore set off up to the lighthouse. When he reached the living quarters, Moore noticed that the clock on the kitchen wall had stopped, the table was set for a meal that had never been eaten and a chair had been toppled over. The canary in a cage was the only sign of life. When he returned, he returned his findings to the captain. After this they did thorough searches to try and find any signs of life. There were no signs of the three keepers throughout the whole search and no one knows where or what happened to the keepers.
