    Officials released new evidence in the Fort Lauderdale missing millionaire case that shows the route Guma Aguiar traveled before he disappeared.

    Aguiar, 33, a businessman and philanthropist who made millions in the oil industry, was last seen June 19. His boat was later ran aground on Fort Lauderdale beach with its engine and navigation lights still on.

    Detectives Thursday released the GPS data tracing Aguiar’s last voyage in his boat and said the boat never came to a complete stop in the Atlantic Ocean.

    According to the data, Aguiar was traveling at top speeds of 31 miles per hour for about 30 minutes in a northeast direction before abruptly decreasing speed to 0.6 miles per hour and changing westbound.

    A witness also told authorities she saw the boat seemingly “wave jumping” and traveling at a high rate of speed. She said she only saw one person on the boat, authorities said.

    Detectives said the evidence so far does not show signs of foul play or that anyone else was on the boat at the time of Aguiar’s disappearance.
