NEW ZEALAND, Colo. (CBS4) – New details have emerged about a former University of Colorado professor who disappeared while sailing off the coast of New Zealand.

The search for the crew lost at sea has been suspended. Evi Nemeth and family members have been missing for a month. They were sailing from New Zealand to Australia.

An undelivered text message is providing new insight and is considered the final hope for finding the schooner. It was sent from the ship and reads: “Thanks storm sails shredded last night, now bare poles … goiing 4kt 310deg will update course info @ 6pm.”

The transmission gives search teams the approximate location and actual time of the last transmission although even with it authorities have not been able to find the ship.

Six Americans and one Brit were on board.
