Treasure hunter finds gold-laden wreck

Treasure hunter Herbert Humphreys, the former owner of the Holiday Inn Grand Cayman, and his team say they have dived and filmed a gold-laden steamship lost off the east coast of the United States before the American Civil War.

Mr. Humphreys, known as Herbo, said the 19th century steamship is located about 40 miles offshore, in international waters and that divers have already recovered some gold coins from the wreck.
