ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- The search is on for what could be the oldest French shipwrecked vessel in the New World.
A team from the St. Augustine Lighthouse is leading the charge.
A crew of marine archaeologists from St. Augustine just returned from the Canaveral coast line.
They are looking for the lost fleet of Jean Ribault, the Frenchman whose name is attached to Ribault High School and many other places around Jacksonville.
"This is something I've been think about since I was a little boy growing up in Jacksonville," Archaeologist Chuck Meide said Monday. He is talking about French colonist Ribault who was sent to help the French colonists in the New World. "When I became an archaeologist, I knew I wanted to find these ships."
