An elderly woman has been reported missing from the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship.
A British woman was reported missing from the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship today, but exactly what happened to her has not yet been determined.
The Queen Mary 2 initially turned back to look for the woman, who was sailing on a 12 night Caribbean itinerary which left New York yesterday. She went missing last night or early this morning, prompting both a search by the Queen Mary 2 and the U.S. Coast Guard.
A spokesperson for Cunard, the parent company of the Queen Mary 2, released a statement saying:
“It is with sadness we can confirm that after a comprehensive search, working with all relevant authorities, Queen Mary 2 has halted the search for a missing guest, presumed overboard….. Cunard's Care team is offering every support to the family…..The ship is now back on course to reach St Maarten on December 26 as schedule.”
After a search of the area in which the woman went missing failed to turn up any sign of her, the search has been called off and she has been deemed lost at sea.
