What happened to Rebecca Coriam? She was a worker on a Disney Cruise Line’s cruise – who was last seen on March, 22. The next day she failed to report for work, and has not been seen since.
Annmaria and Mike Coriam, Rebecca’s parents, say they still hold out hope that their daughter is still alive. After flying to America from their native Britain, to try to figure out what happened to their daughter – the couple came up empty handed. They say that their visit was carefully orchestrated by officials with Disney. In typical fashion, the cruise line seemed to try to keep the couple silent – shuffling them from meeting to meeting – and giving them very little opportunity to speak with the press. Further upsetting them is the fact that close circuit TV footage of their daughter’s last documented moments had been given to police – but not to them. Reports also indicate that the parents were taken onto the ship under heavy cover – in a car with blacked-out windows.
During a tour of the ship – the captain of the ship took the couple to a place where he said he thought their daughter sat before she disappeared. His explanation was that the girl had been washed away by a wave. Rebecca’s father was not buying it. Mr. Coriam, 57, said: ‘It was very, very high up the ship, so I don’t see how that could have happened.’ The couple also dismissed any notion of his daughter having committed suicide. Rebecca was described as fun-loving, athletic, and bubbly.
There is even some suggestion that the disappearance may have been the result of an accidental fall from the ship. Mrs. Coriam said: ‘I had to climb over the barrier to see how someone could fall over the edge – it was near on impossible. You had to get under one rail, over another and climb onto a wide ledge and even then there was a rail. I had to see and look for myself. I know Bex and I know that she would never have done that.’
What the Creams are learning is that many people go missing every year on cruise ships. Many cruise lines have been roundly criticized for not doing enough to protect passengers. Now, some cruises are beginning to sell “all you can booze” packages – which some say will only father increase the risk.
As for the Coriams – they still do not know what happened to their daughter. Whatever has happened, they would just like to know the truth. ‘We don’t know if she is dead or alive. It is the not knowing” said Mrs. Coriam. Let’s hope Disney does everything it can to help them find their daughter.
