CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The Great White Shark that gained notoriety along the east coast over the past few months is back off the coast of South Carolina.

Mary Lee, a 16-foot, 3,500-pound shark was tracked a few hundred miles off the Coast of Charleston on Wednesday, according to OCEARCH, a nonprofit research organization. 

She's joined by two others, Genie and Lydia.  Both those sharks are about the same size as Mary Lee, and are swimming a bit closer to shore, with Genie the closest.

The OCEARCH tracking website follows 35 different great white sharks across the globe. Track Mary Lee online on the Ocearch Global Shark Tracker.
