Submarine HMAS AE1 disappeared  off the northeast coast of Papua New Guinea during WWI on the 14th of September 1914.  The wreckage and its crew have never been found.

 

The disappearance of the AE1, which had been dispatched from Sydney to support military operations against German forces on New Britain just days after Australia declared war on Germany in August 1914, was the country's first major WWI loss.
