DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - Nearly 100 years after the Henry B. Smith freighter went down in Lake Superior during a November storm, a group of shipwreck hunters believes it has found the ship - largely intact.

The Duluth News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/11on0WD ) the group found the wreck last month in about 535 feet of water off the shore of Marquette, Mich. The group of hunters from Minnesota and Wisconsin say they haven't seen the name of the ship on the wreck yet, but all signs indicate it's the Smith.

Jerry Eliason of Cloquet says it's 1 of the most significant finds of his shipwreck-hunting career.

The Henry B. Smith had not been seen since it and its crew of 25 accidentally sailed into the Great Lakes Storm of 1913.
