Mary Lee, the shark named after OCEARCH founder Chris Fischer's mother, was past Grand Strand waters Thursday evening and headed north.

Her latest ping was in the Wilmington N.C. area, off Bald Head Island, about 8:45 p.m. Thursday.

Fishcer said he had been waiting for a shark to name in his mother's honor and Mary Lee was the "most historic and legendary fish" he had encountered.
