South Pacific island is missing

South Pacific island is missing

"An island long believed to be in the middle of the Coral Sea, about 1,200 kilometres due east of the Queensland coast toward New Caledonia, exists on charts and maps but not in reality, Australian scientists say.

Sandy Island appears to be an error that has been propagated through numerous maps and charts, the Sydney Morning Herald reports."
