Rebecca Coriam


Rebecca ‘Becca’ Coriam, 24, from Chester, Cheshire in the United Kingdom, disappeared from Disney Cruise Line's Disney Wonder in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Mexico on Tuesday, March 22, 2011.  Rebecca was last seen just before dawn on March 22, where she worked on the Disney Wonder Cruise liner as a youth activates worker.

The alarm was raised when she failed to show for duty at 0900 hours. The Crew searched the ship but could not find her; Rebecca has since been listed “Missing at sea”. The Mexican Navy launched a search for her.


Her parents, Michael and Ann, left the UK and flew out to California to meet with cruise line officials and investigators giving their attention to this sad case.

Her family last saw her about six weeks prior when she flew home for her grand-father's funeral. They had also been in continual contact with her via Skype and Facebook.

A spokesperson for Disney Cruises said: "We have also conducted a thorough and comprehensive inspection of the ship and spoken with the crew member's colleagues to gather as much information as possible."


An investigation by Interpol and Bahamas Maritime Authority is underway. Though the ship sailed out of an American port, because it's registered in the Bahamas, was in international waters and the victims was a British citizen, it's not expected the FBI will be involved with their own investigation.

However, because the ship sailed out of an American port and would be returning short one person, the United States Coast Guard was notified.


Disney Wonder had left Los Angeles, California around 1700 hours on Sunday, March 20, 2011 en route to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The ship was schedule to arrive at Puerto Vallarta on Wednesday, March 23 at 0700 hours and stay until 1930 hours. When the ship arrived, a search of the vessel indicated that Ms Coriam was not aboard.
