WEST PALM BEACH, Florida (WPTV) -- New satellite images of what appears to be a "ghost ship" off the coast of New Zealand is giving the family of a missing Florida sailor hope that he could still be alive several months after disappearing.

David Dyche and his crew aboard the Nina went missing after sailing from New Zealand to Australia in late May 2013.

The crew disappeared without trace.

Months later, a grainy image taken from space could shed new light on where the crew is and what happened.

"It kind of gives me a little hope where all my hope was gone," said Caryl Dyche, the mother of David Dyche.

Dyche has patiently waited at her home in West Palm Beach for any answers as to what happened to the Nina.

"I mean just sitting here every day, wondering what happened, it's what's hard to take," said Dyche.
