CASE DETAILS

On the surface, pleasure cruises look like a perfectly safe way to take a vacation. But according to the New York Times, beneath the carefree party atmosphere lies a little known secret: sexual assaults. Some claim the crime occurs more regularly than cruise lines would care to admit. This was true of the Bradley family when they set sail from Puerto Rico in March 1998.

Amy was on a cruise to Puerto Rico

Amy Bradley was an All-American girl. She was pretty, outgoing and athletic. And even though Amy was a strong swimmer and a trained lifeguard, she was terrified of the open ocean. According to Amy’s mother, Iva Bradley, Amy had to be persuaded to join her family on the Caribbean cruise ship, Rhapsody of the Seas.

“She was reluctant about going up to the railing. But her dad and her brother both said, ‘Come up here, we’ll hold on to you.'”

Amy managed to put her fears aside and cruise life offered plenty of distractions. On their third night at sea, Amy and her brother, Brad, partied long and hard. Neither returned to the family’s cabin until 3:40 A.M. Amy’s dad, Ron, said he woke up when she came in and said she was going to sleep on the balcony:

“She said she hadn’t been feeling too well because of the motion of the boat since we left Aruba that evening. So she said she was gonna just to stay out there and get some fresh air.”

A vacation nightmare begins

The next time Ron woke up, Brad had gone to bed and Amy was asleep on the balcony:

“I could see Amy’s legs from her hips down. She looks like she was resting comfortably. I dozed back off to sleep. The balcony door was closed, because if it hadn’t been closed, I would have gotten up and closed it.”   Just 30 minutes later, according to Ron, their dream vacation turned into a nightmare:

“About 6:00am, something awoke me again. I got up, looked out on the balcony and the balcony door was open about 14-16 inches and Amy wasn’t on the deck. And I had a little funny feeling at that time, because it was unlike her to be up that early in the morning.”

Did Amy know her abductor?

Amy’s family says the ship’s crew resisted paging Amy, claiming it was too early to use the loudspeakers. And to make things worse, the ship had just docked in the port of Curaçao. Amy’s mother pleaded with the crew:

“I got very, very panicked and frightened and I asked them please don’t put the gangplank down. ‘You need to lock the ship up. You need to back the ship off of the dock.   Don’t let anybody off of this boat. Somebody’s got my daughter.'”

The Bradleys claim the purser didn’t broadcast the first page for Amy until 10 minutes to 8:00. By then, Amy’s mother said, most of the passengers had disembarked for the day:

“I became more and more frantic because I knew that if she was in a position to hear the announcement, she would come immediately to us. And then I had thoughts that maybe somebody had her in a room and she heard it and couldn’t get to us.”

Finally, the captain ordered a search. Officials claimed they combed through all 10 decks, all 999 rooms and found nothing. A three-day search of the ocean also failed to turn up any trace of Amy. The official conclusion: Amy may have fallen overboard, or even jumped.

Amy was not in her room in the morning

The Bradleys began to piece together Amy’s last hours on board the ship. She left the balcony between 5:30 and 6 a.m.   They know she changed her clothes. They know she took her cigarettes. But they don’t know where she was going.   And then, they found a witness. Crystal Roberts said she saw Amy early that morning with the bass player from the ship’s band:

“I saw Amy and the band member walk over and up to the next deck up above us. And about 10 minutes later, he came walking around by himself.”

Others claimed that they had seen the bass player flirting with Amy the night before:

Brad Bradley:

“She said that when they were dancing at the disco, he tried to, you know, dance a little too close, and she had to tell him to back off a little bit.”

That morning, no one but the Bradley family and ship’s security knew Amy was missing.   No one, that is, except the bass player. According to Amy’s brother Brad, the musician mentioned that he felt bad about what had happened to his sister:

“That was a really odd thing to say that early in the stages of this thing, you know.   Nobody knew except for my family and I, and security, that something may be wrong.”

Authorities never found any evidence that the bass player was involved with Amy’s disappearance. Then, according to Steve Reeves, the editor of a cruise line trade publication, a disturbing new theory emerged:

“There’s rumor and legend surrounding slavery in the southern Caribbean. It’s not uncommon knowledge in the maritime community that young white women are considered to be very desirable to foreign procurers.”

Amy’s mother believed her daughter was a perfect target:

“Amy would have been a trophy. Amy would have been someone that, I believe, could have been picked out and fingered to move off of that ship. She could have been held and hidden. She could have been possibly drugged and taken from that ship.”

Officials of Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines insist that Amy either left the ship on her own or met with an unfortunate accident. Her parents are convinced the opposite is true. They are offering a $250,000 reward for information.

    Amy bears a strong resemblance to the actress who portrayed the lead character in the film ACCIDENTAL BABE. The film is about a man who accidentally is given a sex change surgery and has to adjust to being a woman from that point on. I have seen the trailer for this film on YouTube and my favourite seen in that trailer is the one where a scientist is altering her voice to sound female (she spoke in a dubbed voice before that scene). After the doctor raised the pitch of her voice she asks him Joan Rivers style:
    “Hey, Doc, can we talk?”

    Also to add, I can read body language and the photo’s show she was much closer to her
    Mother than her Father. Some conflict there. I may be wrong, but Amy looked gay and I don’t think her Father accepted it as well as the Mother. I know the whole family past a lie detector test. but even guilty people have passed .

    On August 21, 1997, at the age of 13, I was assaulted by a band member on a Carnival Cruise. The following March (24th – my 14th birthday) was when Amy went missing. I keep checking on her story many times a year. I was lucky to have gotten away from my captor. Carnival played it off with offers of a free cruise for my family and breakfast with the captain because it was such an “unfortunate” event. That single event changed my entire world. Prayers for the Bradley family.

    Unsolved Mysteries,
    Has the FBI looked for any leads on the Deep Web? Other countries have been reported to check for missing people on human trafficking pages off of the Tor (a.k.a. the Onion) browser. It may lead to nothing but it may also prove to be worth exploring if they haven’t yet checked.

    First, a question: is the 3rd picture above the actual Amy with maybe his brother on the ship, or it’s just a reenacted scene? Also the 4th picture, is it the actual cabin of her family on the ship?

    Only learned of this case few days ago and searched for every piece of info since. Amazining many credible sightings of her (by a taxi driver on the day of her disappearance, by a local in San Juan 4 days after ther disappearance, by 2 Canadians on a beach in Curacao in 1998, by a Naval officer in a brothel in Curacao in 1999, by a woman in department store restroom in Barbados in 2005, and by many people in Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco). I cannot imagine her family’s feeling when thinking what if they were present on one of those occasions!

    This poor girl, what an unimaginable hell she must have been lived in! Hope the next time she is spotted she’ll be rescued.

      Me too, this is suppose to be such a high profile case, but I just heard of it now in browsing Natalee Holloway case. I haven’t been able to get my mind off of this case. I was a claims investigator for many years, not saying I ‘m as expert as the FBI , but I know witness’s statements to be very sketchy as I interviewed many witness’s. They get the times wrong, And really don’t witness the whole scene. That’s why I think the witness’s in this case are not 100% credible. Even the photo of Amy in the alleged brothel could have been photo shopped. I think that was available in 2005. Anything is possible. I am curious as to how this family won a cruise… Is the Father really sure he saw his daughter on the lounge chair at 5:00 sh, did the Mother see her? I don’t care how old you are. Was the Father upset at his 23 year old daughter, drinking and carrying on. Could they have had a argument. Amy seemed pretty free spirited and not very cautious . OR the other scenario would only be the bass player Allistair . Who put something in her drink and took her to scrupulous traffickers before docking on another boat. They say Allistair was given a lie detector test, but did they do that. ? And he was eventually fired. Remember all the Maddie McCann sightings and tips. ? More investigation needs to be done on how the Father got this free cruise from his company. What I am really surprised at by reading some of the posts is how people are so reluctant to believe that white people are abducted. White children disappear off the streets every day into sex slavery. Look up the Johnny Goosh story, a paperboy that was abducted off the streets. Who now has another name and is a high profile escort for the elite.

    The staff had to be involved, they did not seemed alarmed when the parents reported Amy was missing, they had a parade of excuses not to search for her right then and there.The authorities never found any evidence that the bass player was involved with Amy’s disappearance, that does not mean he didn’t take part in her disappearance. It seemed it was staged, the bass player playing the nice guy, he flirted with Amy the night before, which set the stage. Who knows what was discussed after dancing, maybe they planned to meet up at a certain time or maybe he showed up on the balcony when she was out there and they left together. He knew the perfect time to lure her because he work on the ship. He probably walked her right into the hands of the kidnapper or kidnappers. He know s every inch of that ship and what time would be the right time to lure her, just before the ship docked. That is the perfect opportunity the ship docks people are getting off, it’s noisy and so forth. They ordered the search when they felt like it because they knew at that point there was nothing to be found. The official conclusion: Amy may have fallen overboard, or even jumped that’s baloney. I know her family must be devastated because they were the ones who persuaded her to go in the first place. My prayers goes out to them and Amy as well.

      I believe the Bass player was involved because she was last seen with him. The witness seen them togather and then she disappear. It was a set up looked like to me. Probably someone else that worked on the cruise line was involved looked like to me if it was a passenger like her someone would seen them and when they stoped the passages from leaving the boat someone would seen her. I read where these cruise lines could have people working on them involved in ssex crimes. It would be easier for someone working on the cruise boats be involved they could hide someone out more than a passenger they would now how to do it . I heard of this story for years I remember it on unsolved mysteries. I still believed the Bass player and someone else working on that ship was involved. She was last seen with the Bass player then he was seen by himself that looks funny to me where did she go and just vanish like that looks like if she was seen with a passenger on the cruise someone would seen her with them.g

    I agree with Jenay Mystery, if this girl was a victim of human trafficking, it was someone(s) on the staff. Its the perfect setup, pick out the young, attractive, intoxicated women and pass the info along to whomever does the actual kidnapping. As for the search of the ship yielding nothing, most passengers and crew had mostly disembarked, meaning Amy was removed from the ship or the “search” wasn’t thorough especially if her captors were part of the search party. Has the whole staff of the ship been checked up on yearly? I am willing to bet that if one or more of them are connected to human trafficking, there would be some record of it by the police by now.

      I am having a problem with her Dad’s story about her resting or sleeping on the lounge chair, that he saw her at 5 am, but she was gone by 6 am. If she was so deathly afraid of the being close to the ocean or railing why would she be on the balcony. There’s a lot that doesn’t make sense. Who sent the email of her dressed on the bed like an escort and it took 7 years. Do you think Amy did? A witness saw her back in the disco with Allistair Douglas and he got her a drink said the witness. Then what did the witness see, ? If there was something in the drink, wouldn’t she be groggy. I have been on a couple of cruises. I think as I remembered you are required to take your passport or ID. Could her Father push her over the rail, because she may have come out recently. She looked like she could have been gay, The Mother seemed cool, I’m not so sure about the Dad.

    I simply don’t believe for a minute that this bass player, or any other employee of Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines was in the habit of stealing young women and selling them into the sex trade. Especially American Women, and this ship does embark from the U.S. If anyone else’s daughter had disappeared from this ship, after Amy Bradley did, the story would have broken and you’d better believe that there would have been a full investigation.
    My heart too goes out to her family. But I believe the most likely scenario is that Amy came in from the balcony, changed her clothes, got her cigarettes and went back out onto the balcony to smoke. I think she may have been leaning over the rail, perhaps to see the lights of the island of Curacao, and accidentally fell overboard. Before 6:00 a.m., when her father noticed her missing from the deck, it probably would’ve still been somewhat dark out at sea and most people could’ve still been sleeping. Something woke the dad up around that time, perhaps that was the sound of her falling overboard. No one has mentioned a search of the water done from that time. The fall alone could have rendered her unconscious, and she could’ve unfortunately drowned.
    So that’s my humble opinion of the sad case of Amy Bradley.

      Fully believable and logical. I agree that Amy died on that ship- though the circumstances might be in question. I do have to consider the possibility that she was assaulted and thrown overboard, as well as the possibility of an accidental fall overboard, because she was seen in the elevator at or around 6am, going to the top deck. She was seen by another passenger, an independent witness. (IIRC this may even be on video). This means Amy couldn’t have fallen off of her own balcony, because she did leave the room. But she could have fallen overboard from another part of the ship or been pushed. So to me, the mystery is: was her death accident or murder. Yellow, the bass player, may not be responsible for her supposed death,but he may know something about what happened to her. He was seen in the elevator with her at 6am (going to the top deck), and returning alone, so it’s also possible that whatever happened to Amy happened after he parted company with her, But it’s natural to wonder if he knows more than he’s ever shared with law enforcement.

      There were a number of weird and even “creepy” happenings on the ship during the Bradleys cruise, but I deeply doubt they point to sex trafficking of the female passengers. Amy was a high risk victim- American, middle class, on a trip with her family. Not to mention she had distinctive identifying marks, her tattoos. Though a lovely young woman, I can’t see that she represented a trophy that someone just had to have, even a procurer working for potential buyers and on the lookout for a “type”, prepared to take whoever matched it. I have no idea how common such a scenario is in sex trafficking, but it seems unlikely, compared to the number of women who are tricked when they respond to a job offer in a new country, or an ad for modeling, or are even just grabbed off the street because they are female and alone- [ala Criminal Minds Season 10]. As unlikely as I think the sex traffick,answer is in this case if plausible I would expect 1) that Amy would be sold to a specific buyer waiting for her “type” why sent out his procurer, making it unlikely she’d be sold into prostitution and 2) I’d expect other, similar incidents to have occurred before and after Amy’s case. While other people have certainly disappeared from or died on cruise ships, both passengers and crew, there have not to my knowledge been incidents similar to Amy’s disappearance, which had some unique details, including the behavior of male crew and the alleged sightings of her afterward, always under someone’s immediate control. To be clear, I am arguing against the abduction/sex trafficking explanation for Amy’s disappearance. i don’t think it’s plausible
      In her case.
      Which leaves me with occam’s razor- the simplest explanation is usually the correct one. she likely died on the ship 18 years ago, by accident or foul play. Did she fall overboard, completely unnoticed, and either die on impact or somehow get sucked under the ship (entering its docking procedure) and drown? Or could she have been attacked by a sexual predator, whether a passenger or crew member, and killed in the attack, or afterward. I’m sad to say I lean in this direction, in part because of the fact that the ship WAS about to dock. The family argues against the overboard theory because Amy was a strong swimmer, and the ship was close to shore- suggesting that if Amy fell she could swim for shore. I tend to discount falling overboard because I can imagine she was hurt or killed by the impact but can’t imagine an accident like that being completely unseen. If by some fluke it was unseen, I’d think her body would have been found, during searches of the water. the water were searched. As I recall, the cruise line “party line” was that Amy fell overboard and died accidentally.

      She could have been thrown overboard immediately, or her body hidden by person or persons unknown and disposed of later. This might seem to point to crew as possible murderers,(again, if that is what happened) because crew would know where a body could be hidden temporarily. They would be prepared for the search that ensued, have access to laundry carts, and be familiar with Curacao, in case it was safer to dispose of the body away from the ship. However, passengers had access to their own quarters and suitcases, and could also have developed knowledge of potential hiding spots on board. Though a passenger could have less familiarity, they could have enough. If Amy, alive, could have been smuggled off the ship if a laundry cart, for example, so could her body. And a large suitcase would also do the job. Passengers were not informed of her disappearance; although the Bradleys begged the captain to prevent passengers from leaving the ship, he raised the gangplank, and the passengers were allowed to come and go from the ship, with packages and luggage, never searched.

      I first thought that if Amy met foul play, all a killer would have to do is hide her body during the docking, then dispose of he when the ship returned to open water, only hours after Amy disappeared, according to the Bradley family’s timeline, which I saw on Vanished with Beth Holloway. Although I wonder how hard it would be to avoid everyone – crew and passengers- on a huge cruise ship,to drop a dead body over the side. It might have been easier to smuggle Amy’s body off the ship in a suitcase, for example, when docked in Curaçao . I can think of a number of methods of disposal after getting off the ship, including taking the body out in a small boat (owned rented, stolen, borrowed) and dropping it into the ocean. Something like this could account for why Amy’s body has never been found. She might be buried too, of course, but the water seems most likely.

      It’s such a sad story, and I think quite a scary one. Amy presumably felt safe from other people on the ship, and she should have been safe. I don’t know what to think, exactly but I fear someone did kill her. The facts, including her being a skilled swimmer, and the ship being near port, plus the height and stability of safety rails, make an accident seem less likely. Unless Amy was taking chances, climbing over the rails or climbing up to sit on them I can’t imagine a “simple” accident like slipping and falling overboard. Ans as Amy was afraid of the open ocean that seems wildly unlikely.

      I keep hoping for a body- some closure for the family- but if something like I have posited above happened to Amy, I don’t think she’ll ever be found. Closure may only come if there is a person or persons who know what happened. I hope the authorities will learn of it or the person(s) will,come forward. The not knowing is just the saddest thing I can imagine- likely worse than a death is not Knowing that a loved one IS really dead. The family deserves our prayers and respect, as does Amy.

    Yup I Would Say That! But I Really Do Believe That Somebody Had Witnessed The Abduction Hopefully Amy’s Parents Will Finally Get Some Answers That Might Help Them To Find The Truth of What Had Really To Amy The Night She Had Disappeared! who Knows Somebody Might Have Threw her Off In To The Water Where She Might Have Drowned!

    evidently its a free for all on board their cruise ship. god forbid waking anybody up trying to find a missing family member. im sure nobody else on the ship would expect that to be done for them if they were missing someone, right ? nobodys getting away with anything, you will eventually answer. i guess if you take a cruise on a floating out house youre on your own.

If I had the money to travel I would go look for her myself. I hope her family doesn’t give up searching. maybe they should send a letter to the White house and maybe the fbi should Help.

    My heart goes to Amy’s family. So sad that a dream vacation has become their nightmare. I personally feel like Amy never left that ship.(until it was all clear for person responsible to dump her overboard) Because of the Cruise lines lack of locking the ship down and bringing police and search dogs in to locate Amy before allowing one person to exit that ship. They are at fault. And that gave the person responsible ample time to dispose his dirty little secret! I 100% feel it was a worker of that ship. And sure hope better laws have since been put into effect to prevent this happening to other families. You can betcha ass if that happened to one of my kids? I’d called police myself from that boat and told that captain he had 30 seconds to lock that ship down while I was contacting police, news stations, president of US whoever I had to call to get attention and action taken. I pray for Amy’s family fo have peace. And maybe they should hire a legit investigator to get back ground checks on each employee of that ship and start there. And then lie detector tests for that “bass player”. Maybe then the truth will surface.

    Hold Royal Caribbean responsible for the safe return home of this woman. I bet she would be home in no time then. That cruise line did not do enough to help the family, and damn sure should have held that band player accountable. Be surprised how he would of sang like a canary under interrogation. Now this family has not had their daughter or sister around for 18 years, 18 years no one has been held accountable for Amy’s pain and suffering. Really really unbelievable. Come on people find Amy Bradley. Hold Royal Caribbean cruise line accountable.

      That was in 2005 that the family was sent an alleged photo of Amy dressed up . If she was sold onto a sex traffic ring, I think they would have done away with her by now. I hope not, but they did find the skeleton of a jaw of a caucasion girl wash up In Aruba. They need to really go over that witness’s account again. I don’t know why Americans find it hard to believe that woman would be abducted into sex slavery. Children are picked up off the street every day By high level people. You never heard of pizza gate. Its just difficult to believe that if Amy left that balcony, why wouldn’t she take her shoes. She took her cigarettes but not her shoes. So that could leave only two things, she fell off or was pushed off. Could her father and her have had words? Lost his temper and accidentally pushed her. I’m not sure that’s her in the photo on the bed dressed up like a hooker. lots of questions. Another thing, why did her Father say his daughter was taken , she is an adult, she could have gone anywhere. lots of unanswered questions.

    I can’t believe this is still unsolved, I will pray daily until it is! Being a teenager in 1998, I saw this as a news story and prayed for it then too. I asked the Lord what happened back then and I believe she was captured with the crew involved. The Lord told me to check on this story again in 2016 after so long, and I was horrified that it’s still unsolved. She will be saved. I pray in the name of Jesus for her return to her family!

    I have only just learnt of this story – I watched her episode on Crime & Investigation just last night. It was shocking – I was at the edge of my seat when the captain of the ship disembarked the ship then the ship was to set off again. She was reported missing BEFORE disembarkment – was this captain not done for neglect and improper handling of a missing persons report? Maybe its just me but I cannot get my head around this – perhaps answers would have been achieved had he dealt with this differently – if she had been held against her will and taken onto the island – maybe had he dealt with this differently she would have been found!! I also believe the bassist knows something – i also suspect he has played a part in many more disappearance!! Another site said according to his facebook he has found god – i hope his god tells him to do the right thing and give her family information. So i read too if she is still alive it is likely she now suffers from stockholm syndrome which is for me just adds to the anguish!! I cant imagine any bigger distress for any family to loose a family member without a trace!!! I hope they one day have resolution!!!!

    I’ve been tracking this for many years now and my heart goes out to the family. I have this gut feeling that she is still alive out there… and the right person is going to come across her and help her out of whatever trouble she is in. She won’t be the same again, but she will be home with her family. Her family has not given up and that will be the most important thing that she will see once she gets back with them. There are plenty of stories of abductions where victims have been found YEARS later and I believe that will be the case once Amy is found. There have been too many sightings and coincidental women stating they are her and pleading for help… there’s no other explanation. She’s out there and she needs help. She may be “playing along” with her captors because she knows it will save her life and I’m sure she’s a smart lady… she’ll get out of this alive and I pray her parents are still around to witness it.
    I believe it’s very hard b/c it’s not in the United States and I think they are limited with what can be done and it shouldn’t be that way. She’s a US citizen and ALL resources should be pulled to find her. I pray she is found soon….

    Watching now on 48 hrs! I believe this case is solvable sytill. Someone needs to use common sense and ask the right ppl the right questions and do it now. Even back then there had to be video. And certainly the staff including the bass player would know every part of that ship. For that matter, the passengers would have had cameras too, and the shop would have a list of passengers. If she was taken, she could be in or on that film! Furthermore, if they believe her to be a sex slave, I’m sure there are creepy websites for that too, so look there for pics showing her tattoos…

    Has the hypothesis of Amy going over the balcony rail as a matter of suicide, or recklessness as to whether or not she lived, been fully examined? What exactly were the reasons for her misgivings about going on the cruise in the first place? Did investigators talk to her friends, to her doctor? Were her letters and emails examined? Was she troubled about something, say a boyfriend? What did she talk about to her brother, during her last known hours, as they both sat on the balcony? Just how much alcohol and, if applicable, other drugs had she taken by the time she was sitting on the balcony? What do the tattoos tell us about her? BTW, the last known sighting of Amy was when she was observed, apparently sleeping, on the balcony by her father (after her brother had retired to bed); all other sightings are speculative. Why would she leave the cabin and go into the public area of the ship, without her shoes?

    I have been reading about this case since I read about it on a website. I had no idea this sort of thing could happen on a cruise. Makes me paranoid and uneasy just thinking about going on a cruise ship. I pray that Jesus will have mercy and bring Amy back to her family.

    I been following this stories for years , I do believe she was and is held against her will and was forced into the sex trade!!!! Caribbean island, Boat cruises to these island are very known for this…. Also I know new pictures were seen on Internet did they ever track IP address ???? There r sooooo many new systems tht can break all those codes ! I hope they find her , and def feel they will find her alive , a lot of shows who aired her story looks like she is a fighter!!!! I believe one day she will be back home until then let’s fight to find this woman and charge these pigs sex trade is a ugly disgusting world

      Dwava – I think you are 100% correct. Some time after her disappearance (can’t recall how much time had passed), someone noticed a picture of her in a magazine that was advertising Escorts or something of that nature. That Bass Player was involved in her disappearance I just know it. There is a possibility that Amy is still alive, but being in the sex trade for that long, and regular aging, might mean she has since been murdered. The people who kidnapped her would never release her when she wasn’t ‘desirable’ any longer. They would murder her so she wouldn’t identify them. It is my belief that Amy is now dead…

    This case was also featured on Rob Dyke’s “Seriously Strange” series on YouTube. One of the missing person’s profile was Amy Bradly. Here’s an update based on his video: an American sailor visited a brothel in Curacao and encountered a woman who claims to be Amy. When she was asking for help, 2 unidentified men escorted the woman out. The sailor was scared to admit he was at the bar because he was still on duty and he may be discharged. However, when he finally admitted 2 months after the encounter, the brothel had burned down. 7 years after Amy’s disappearance, her family was e-mailed from an mysterious escort service with the picture of what looks like Amy in a racy appearance on the bed. It could be the fact that Amy herself might have sent it to her family for help or her abductor(s) might have sent the picture, taunting the family that they will never get their daughter back or they might have given a clue to them, meaning they may have threaten the family to give up search or else, they can hunt the family down by tracing their IP address.

    I pray Amy will be set free from her captors. I don’t believe she’s dead, and its a horrible thing to write you think-someone is dead, when she has a family filled with hope, yet at times I am sure challenged. Father in heaven please move mightily in this case and return Amy home. I pray her captors would repent from all the evil they have done, not just to Amy but many others like her. And all those who had a part in Amy’s abduction would receive justice from on HIGH, the courts of heaven would be their judge. For when God does it, HE does it best. I pray for a reassurance of hope to this family. In Yeshua/Jesus name AMEN

  38. She's not alive....I'm sorry!

    I just watched the show which I seen twice. I believe she was thrown over the ship by someone she met on the ship. Probably raped several times, gaged, tied up and threw overboard before the ship even got to Curacao. Very very sad!!!

    I have been following the Amy Bradley case since I was a young girl in the 1990s. I wish more people cared about finding her. Unfortunately at this point I think she’s too far gone and will most likely never return home.

    It’s extremely unfortunate that crimes like this can happen on cruises, where it’s otherwise, exciting and fun and an opportunity not many will get to have. I know since Amy’s disappearance there have been changes in protocols and more recourse developed for victims, but still not enough that it CAN BE PREVENTED altogether. If it means they need more staff, harsher requirements and background checks, so be it. Honestly, I believe more crimes involve staff and members of the cruise line than passengers. That’s just my gut feeling based on my research and my own cruise experience.

      Royal Caribbean should be held accountable for this girls disappearance. Background checks should be done on the crew working these ships. You can bet my family will not travel with Royal Caribbean again. And we have went on 6 cruises. But if they care no more for their passengers well beings than this forget it. I would not go if it was free. Hell all family members may not return home safely. They make enough money off these cruises they could help fund and locate Amy and bring her back home again.
