George Smith’s family has been searching for answers since they first heard that their son went missing. From the beginning the Smith’s state that Royal Caribbean offered very little detail.
Royal Caribbean called the Smiths that first day, but they say the representative offered few details.
“No news. Never told us about the blood in the cabin. Never told us about the blood on the overhang,” says Bree.
She says all the cruise line told them was that George Smith IV was missing and that they didn’t have any further information.
The issue of what happened to George Smith and a perceived cover up of what transpired that last evening that he went missing seem to be coming to a boiling point.
The mystery of a newlywed who vanished last July from his honeymoon cruise is heating up. As The Early Show co-anchor Hannah Storm reports, the captain of the ship said Wednesday night that George Smith IV and his wife Jennifer had been drinking heavily the night he went missing and that Jennifer was found passed out.
The Smith family says the captain’s comments are just the latest example of the cruise line trying to deflect criticism of how it handled their son’s disappearance.
