Rebecca Coriam, Disney cruise ship employee, still missing

Rebecca Coriam, Disney cruise ship employee, still missing nearly a week after her disappearance

The family of a 24-year-old Disney cruise ship crewmember who disappeared while at sea met with investigators as the luxury liner docked in Los Angeles.
Rebecca Coriam, of ChesterEngland, was reported missing on the ship on March 22, after she failed to report for a scheduled shift on the Disney Wonder.
The ship was on the second day of a seven-day cruise along the western coast of Mexico.
"We just don't know what happened to her, do we? And that's just the worst. We've got to find out what happened," Coriam's mother, Ann, told KABC-TV.
Cousin Trish Davies said officials told the family that Coriam had made a phone call shortly before being reported missing.
The ship docked in Los Angeles Sunday and headed back out to sea later Sunday night.
Coriam had worked for the cruise line since last summer in its youth services department.
Disney Cruise Line officials say they have searched the entire ship multiple times, but have found no trace of Coriam.
The Mexican Navy and the U.S. Coast Guard have also searched the seas through which the ship travelled around the time she was last seen.
"We have been doing everything possible to find Rebecca Coriam," said Disney spokeswoman Christi Erwin Donnan. "Rebecca's disappearance has been difficult for everyone at Disney Cruise Line."
Returning passengers said they were told during the cruise Coriam was missing, and were asked to keep an eye out for her.
"They announced it over the airwaves and they said that there was a missing crew member, can you please help look for the person," said passenger Ron Uyen as he disembarked in Los Angeles. "It was scary. You watch your kids a little closer."
Another passenger, Suzanne Lopez, said "later they announced again that they were not able to locate her. They were really good about keeping us up to date. Everybody was really worried."
The 1,000-foot-long Disney Wonder carries 2,500 passengers and 1,000 crew members.
