    Where Is Mary Lee the Great White Shark?

    The tracker on a famous shark has gone silent. Researchers said they have not received a signal from Mary Lee's tracker since mid-June. Mary Lee is a great white shark who travels to the Jersey shore every year.

    The transmitter attached to a great white shark being tracked on Twitter has fallen silent.

    The research group OCEARCH says the transmitter on the shark known as Mary Lee has not sent a signal since June 17, when she was swimming off the New Jersey coast.

    Founding chairman Chris Fischer and his crew caught and tagged the 16-foot shark off Massachusetts in 2012. Since then, thousands of people have followed Mary Lee's swims along the East Coast on a Twitter page managed by OCEARCH.

    In a Florida Times-Union report, Fischer said the transmitter's batteries simply may have died, partly because Mary Lee surfaced frequently, which triggered more signals.

    Fischer said he expected Mary Lee to live another 20 years.

    An OCEARCH vessel will depart Jacksonville University next month to search for additional sharks to tag.
