A 73 year old British passenger aboard a Celebrity Cruise ship is missing off Portugal. Celebrity Cruise has stated they are reviewing surveillance tapes and talking to other passengers who may have seen the man.
A crew member reported the disappearance Wednesday, after it appeared the man traveling alone had not used his cabin on the Celebrity Century, the Miami-based cruise line said. The captain immediately began a search, reversed course to retrace the ship’s path and began making public announcements, the company said.
Celebrity said it notified British, Portuguese and Bahamian officials and the FBI, and was cooperating fully with all authorities. (Yahoo News)
