A chef on Coral Princess has gone missing somewhere between Aruba and Cartagena.

See the A.P. story here

Now there is a conflicting report that he was seen talking to another crew member as late as 8:30 a.m. as the ship neared Cartagena.

See it here.

This is horrible! I am sure they searched the ship, but it seems too strange that people "saw" him at different times. It almost sounds like he and another crew member got into a fight, since he supposedly walked out of the kitchen. I pray they find him, but doubt they will. His family is in my prayers.

That's strange that he left without saying anything. If were going to the loo, I'm sure he'd say he'd be right back. Maybe a love affair gone wrong? An argument with someone? And what's up with the missing life preserver? If someone is going to committ suicide they aren't going to take a life preserver with them.

Have they checked all the CCTV?

Cruise Passengers Overboard

Interesting info. I have to admit one of the reasons I put off cruising was I was afraid I might not return after hearing about various guests who didn't. I remember a story on "America's Most Wanted" where a woman has never been found and they don't know what happened to her.

Not a word, Penny; I'm thinking they are keeping things quiet until the FBI joins the investigation when Coral Princess returns to San Pedro on Tuesday. I have read some speculation that he may have wanted to "disappear" since someone chaims to have seen him as late as 8:30 in the morning on approach to Cartagena. This might explain the flares being torn off the life jacket: didn't need 'em during the day.

It's really mysterious. I hope they find this guy hiding somewhere on the ship. I pray for a happy ending.

Nothing new, except Coral Princess is in Los Angeles and the F.B.I. is now involved in the case.

Here is the latest.
