The FBI says a reward of up to $25,000 is available for information leading to the resolution of the case of a missing Virginia woman.
Amy Lynn Bradley, 23 years old at the time, was on vacation with her parents and brother on the Royal Caribbean International cruise line ship Rhapsody of the Seas when she disappeared.
Special Agent Erin Sheridan says the ship was traveling toward Curacao, Netherlands Antilles on the night of March 23, 1998.
“That evening, Amy was out at the disco with her brother, other passengers, and crew socializing and having a great time. In the morning, when her parents and her brother woke, Amy was gone,” says Sheridan.
Many details of Amy’s night out are missing, so even the smallest bit of information could help agents solve her case.
If you have information about Amy or what may have happened to her, you’re asked to Report tips to your local FBI office or American Embassy or Consulate or online at tips.fbi.gov.
According to CruiseShipMissing.com a surprising number of passengers and crew members have simply vanished from cruise ships around the world over the years or while on a cruise but not necessarily missing from the vessel itself.
On the page of CruiseShipMissing.com where females who have gone missing by name can be found, Amy is listed as one of 32 women, some passengers and some of them crew members, who have disappeared from cruise ships from 1998 through this year.
Amy Bradley is the oldest missing persons case on that page. The most recent missing woman listed on the page is Li Yinglei, 36, a cruise ship passenger who went missing from the MSC Magnifica February 10, 2017 in Italy.
