Mystery of the Chilean lake that disappeared - Independent Online

Scientists in Chile have been faced with a riddle after a lake in Patagonia disappeared. The five-mile long glacial lake in the Magallanes region of southern Patagonia was last seen four months ago.

The disappearance of the five-acre body of water in Bernardo O'Higgins National Park was discovered in late May by park rangers

The slur that this isn't the first time the words "mystery disappearance" coupled with the name of an Irish Traveller is ridiculous - as every schoolboy knows O'Higgins was born in Chillán, Chile. As noted in his certificate of baptism, he was the illegitimate son of Ambrosio O'Higgins, Marquis of Osorno, a Spanish officer from County Sligo in Ireland, who became governor of Chile and later viceroy of Peru. His mother was Isabel Riquelme, a prominent Chillán lady. O'Higgins spent his early years with his mother's family in Central-south Chile. He had a distant relationship with his father, who supported him financially and was concerned with his education, but the two never met in person ( Wikipedia)
