Circumstances of disappearance
Amy, a citizen of the United States,
was on a vacation cruise with her family in the Caribbean during March 1998. She
vanished aboard the cruise ship Rhapsody of the Seas (a Norwegian Flag
Ship), which is owned and operated by Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines of
Miami, Florida, USA. The cruise ship was near docking procedures into port in
the island of Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles. Amy was last seen at approximately
5 am (5:00) Tuesday morning, March 24, 1998, sleeping on the balcony of the
cabin that she was sharing with her parents and her brother. When the family
awoke, at approximately 6 am (6:00), she was gone, along with her cigarrettes
and lighter and the sliding glass door of the balcony was open. The family
assumed that she had gone to get a Coke and smoke a cigarrette. However, when
she failed to appear, they contacted the pursor's desk and, ultimately, the
captain. Amy's disappearance happened sometime between 5:00 - 6:00, and at that
time, the boat was approximately 15-20 miles outside of Willemstad, Curaçao. The
ship then docked in Curaçao at approximately 7 am.
The last person seen with Amy was "Yellow", a member of the cruise ship's band, Blue Orchid. There were other crew members who spent time with Amy, as well. They were Katalin (from Hungary) and waiters Eduardo Cabrito, David Cato and "Patrick". It is not thought that Amy ran away, as she doesn't fit the "runaway profile". Her family members aren't considered suspects in her disappearance, either. One scenario suggests that Amy may have willingly met with a crew member who she had come to trust who then put her in a position of coercion. Another possibility is that Amy may have observed illegal activity and become a liability. It is believed that there are certain individuals in the Caribbean and South America who have knowledge of Amy's whereabouts.
Amy was a resident of Chesterfield County, Virginia, USA at the time of her 1998 disappearance. She wears a short hair cut. Amy is described as a very friendly, active and outgoing person. She attended college in Longwood, Virginia, USA and is on a basketball scholarship. She smokes Marlboro lights cigarettes and enjoys drinking Coca-Cola and Miller Lite. She also likes hard candy. Amy wears all silver jewelry and likes black onyx.
