Passenger reported missing

Monday 14 December 2015

"During the morning of Sunday 13th December, whilst the Saga Sapphire was crossing the Atlantic, a 70 year-old passenger was reported missing by her travelling companion.

Passenger reported missing

Following a comprehensive search of the ship, she could not be found. Working in conjunction with maritime authorities the Saga Sapphire re-traced her path and conducted a search. The captain and maritime authorities have now concluded that given the length of time the lady would have been overboard the search should be concluded. 

This is a tragic event and our prayers are with the family, friends and travelling companion for their loss. We are providing support for her travelling companion onboard and for relatives in the UK."
