Deepening the mystery of missing Florida millionaire Guma Aguiar's disappearance, experts examining newly released GPS data from Aguiar's boat say it could suggest a scenario in which he jumped from his 31-foot center console and boarded a waiting boat mid-sea.

"The pattern is very identifiable. It just sort of fits as a scenario," boat expert Henry Pickersgill told ABCNews.com. "There appears to be a pattern in the vessel's track, speed, longitude and latitude to indicate that it may have stopped briefly for enough time for Mr. Aguiar to have transferred to another vessel."

Pickersgill is an independent marine surveyor based in Brooksville, Fla. He has been in the marine industry for more than 40 years.
