Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On October - 1 - 2007

The body of a cruise ship passenger has been found. The 67-year-old woman, who has not been named, was reported missing by her husband from the P&O Oceana early on Sunday morning.

A sea search by coastguard and lifeboat crews discovered the woman in the Solent Straight between Calshott and Cowes off the Isle of Wright in the U.K. She was airlifted to a hospital, where her death was confirmed.

A police investigation has begun into her death. She was last seen in her cabin at about 5:45 AM.

The Oceana was returning from a short cruise between Southampton and Zeebrugge, Belgium.

A spokesman for P&O Cruises said: “We can confirm that a person was reported missing from their cabin just prior to daybreak this morning as Oceana was approaching Southampton.

“Our missing persons procedures were immediately put into action and this included notification of the Coastguard.”
