Search called off after woman 'falls overboard from cruise ship'

A 74-year-old woman was reported missing yesterday, a day after the ship set sail from New York.

THE SEARCH HAS been called off for a woman believed to have fallen overboard from the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship.

The ship left New York on Thursday and was en route to St Martin in the Caribbean.

Naval officer David Micallef told BBC News a 74-year-old woman had been reported missing in the early hours of Friday.

It’s believed the woman is British.

In a statement, Cunard, the company which operates the ship, said: “It is with sadness we can confirm that after a comprehensive search, working with all relevant authorities, Queen Mary 2 has halted the search for a missing guest, presumed overboard…

“Cunard’s care team is offering every support to the family.”
