Simple answer is No !
If any of it were true why would any vessel, air or sea venture through the area.
It is more likely that a significant portion of the alleged mystery disappearances have been inaccurately reported or wildly exaggerated by some authors in an effort to promote their books.
There are numerous official investigation reports stating that the number and nature of disappearances in the region is no different to that of any other area of ocean anywhere in the world.
As I have said in many of my Hubs and answers to other Hubs on the Paranormal, fear and conspiracy theories grossly exaggerated sell books.
