I do not know. Did some more searching but found no new information, although a lot of articles on the subject. I went to google yesterday to try to find the island. Strange thing when I was zoomed out on the island, it looked like it was on the map, but when I zoomed in it disappeared. I think Google was in the process of removing it from the data base.

Some articles say a "fake" island may be put on a chart or map by the map/chart maker. That way, if someone illegally plagiarizes the map/chart, the maker will know. But another article says this is not done on charts, as the entire chart would not be trusted if a fake island were found on it.
