    NC - Petty Officer Taylor Machado, 21, Virginia Beach, 9 April 2016

    The Navy has identified the sailor who went missing from the dock landing ship USS Carter Hall April 9 off the coast of North Carolina as Taylor KayJean Machado, a gunner's mate 3rd class, went missing from the ship during training operations in support of a pre-deployment exercise some 60 nautical miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras.

    Officials say the Navy, assisted by the Coast Guard, searched for Machado for about 72 hours in an area off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, before suspending the search Tuesday afternoon.

    I find this so very sad

    What makes them so sure she went overboard? I hope every single nook and cranny of that ship was searched. So vague.

    She probably missed quarters or watch. Afterwards, each division was likely tasked to search their spaces while conducting overboard searches. A missing sailor while at sea is evolution involving all hands not on watch and not taken lightly. A lot of ship to search, though if a Marine detachment is not onboard and I haven't heard if there was one onboard.

    A crew member conducting a head count realized someone was missing around 4:20 p.m. on April 9, and put out a man overboard call.

    An investigation into the incident is in progress.

    Do they have CCTV on Navy ships? I am probably asking a stupid question. I just hate to think that no one will ever know the circumstances of her disappearance.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    One of 3 scenarios: Suicide (which apparently is more common now than when I was onboard ship), Accident or Murder. In any event there is an investigation that has either begun or will soon. I'm just wondering who is doing the investigation - an officer or board appointed by the CO or group commander or NCIS - as I have not seen it mentioned.

    "5:44 p.m. EDT April 10, 2016"

    This is an older article, before her name was released.

    Interesting to note:

    "A pair of boots with a note was reportedly found on deck near the rear of the ship,…" (Snipped By Me)

    I wonder what was in the note?

    Also, her family was notified but they did not want to release her name to the public…

    IMOO.

    Well that makes it sound more like a suicide. . I feel sad. You can't really tell by just pictures but there was something awfully sweet about her.

    I heard this rumor about the boots and the note on the base, but I never did see anything in the media till this. And this looks like one of the first articles.

    I appears her family do believe her to be deceased.
