Details: In March 1998, Amy Bradley and her family began a Caribbean cruise on the Rhapsody of the Seas. One night, she fell asleep on the balcony of their cabin. A few minutes later, her father discovered that she was missing. The next morning, the ship docked in Curacao, and she was never seen again. The crew claimed that she either fell off the ship or left of her own accord, upon searching and observing all 10 decks, and all 999 rooms, and not a trace of her was found. The ocean was also searched for 3 whole days, and nothing turned up.
Her family deduced that she had left her balcony after 5:30am, changing her clothes and taking her cigarettes with her. Crystal Roberts, a witness, had told the Bradleys that she saw her around that same time headed up to the next deck with the guitarist of the ship's band, confirmed to be the last to see her alive, but evidence was found to incriminate him, other than the fact that he was the only person aside from her family and security to know that she was missing.
Suspects: Amy was last seen with a member of the ship's band, a person of note believed to have kidnapped and sold her into the underground Caribbean prostitution ring around Curacao.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the May 28, 1999 episode. Amy's Disappearance was profiled on various media such as America’s Most Wanted and Vanished with Beth Holloway. It was once theorized that it could be connected to the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, but this connection has since been dropped.
Results: Unsolved. A Naval officer on Curacao believed he encountered Amy in a brothel asking for help, and two Canadian tourists saw a woman matching her description with the correct tattoos on a beach in the company of two men who quickly hustled her away. A photo of a woman matching her description was found on an adult website. It is believed that natives of the islands have been masking drinks with date-rape drugs in order to kidnap and force women into prostitution. The sightings have never been confirmed, however, and she has never been located. A $250,000 reward is being offered for information in the case.
