    Chicago Tribune:

    Missing pair likely fell off cruise ship

    Items compiled from Tribune news services
    Published May 17, 2005

    THE CARIBBEAN -- An American couple that disappeared during a Caribbean cruise probably fell overboard, officials in Puerto Rico said Monday.

    The 71-year-old man and 67-year-old woman aboard the Carnival Destiny disappeared Thursday between the islands of Barbados and Aruba, said U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Omar Barrera.

    "The only logical conclusion it that they somehow fell overboard," Barrera said.

    Investigators found a few belongings, including a purse and sandals, out in the open on the third floor of the ship. There were no signs of suicide, and the two evidently were in good health with no serious personal problems.

    Two Coast Guard planes conducted an unsuccessful search. Passing ships were asked to be on the lookout.

    so there are 4 missing persons,
    and two of them were an elderly couple, correct?

    have they mentioned what they think happened
    to the younger two people missing?

    One of them was on a different ship. It sounds like the Destiny should check out their staff members.

    Wow, that is 6 people missing from Carnival Cruise ships! 1 from Royal Caribbean. I still remember another one in the last couple of years and am looking for it. Something sure doesn't sound right. I have been on two of the ships that people are missing from.

    I've been on one of them. I wonder if this is just a new way to commit suicide or if a staff member is pushing them off.

    more info on the woman missing in post # 5

    http://www.gmtoday.com/news/local_st...1052005_06.asp

    Mizenerís disappearance set off a flurry of unconfirmed rumors, including that a security camera was tampered with near the location on the ship where crew members found her purse. Family members have said they donít believe she could have committed suicide.

    Wow! I didn't realize there were that many cases. The only one I even heard was Amy Bradley. They really need to do some investigating of the staff members on those ships. I am sure in at least one of these cases the person jumped or fell overboard.
    Just my opinion of course!!

    Rachel,


    I had no idea either. I have been on more cruises than I can count and never even heard of it. I have actually found several more cases but didn't post them because suicide was supected. The ones that I posted seem to be suspicious. I also came across quite a few of sexual assaults with the victims being passengers and the suspects crew members. One was an accusation of sexual assault on a 2 year old by crew member baby sitter! Sure is alot of stuff happening on the ships.

    OMG. I've been on a lot of cruises, too, but had not heard of the sexual assaults by crew members. I can see how that could happen.

    As far as falling overboard, I think that would be really hard to do unless you were standing on the rail.

    Wow!

    In a lot of ways this sounds like how Disney handles problems in their theme parks-because they don't want the adverse publicity, the company does EVERYTHING in its power to keep these incidents as quiet as possible. I know in one of the cases, a person who discovered some items of Annette's actually contacted the FBI directly because of "suspicious circumstances" he observed and the fact that the cruise employees seemed to be VERY lax in trying to preserve what he perceived as a possible crime scene. And to think my daughter's high school band trip in 2004 was on Carnival-I don't think they will be using that line again if I have anything to say about it!

    Bring Maura home!

    You are so right gatetracker, Disney covers up lots of stuff and I'm sure that the cruse lines don't want things like this getting out either.
