How to identify a cruise ship disappearance

The FBI is investigating a cruise-ship disappearance that took place off the coast of Georgia on Friday, CNN affiliate WSB-TV reported.

The Coast Guard said in a statement that the cruise ship, called “Chesapeake,” was en route from Boston to New York and that passengers and crew were aboard when it disappeared off the southern tip of Georgia.

Authorities found the cruise-ships’ two remaining passengers and one crew member, but the Coast Guard did not say how many people were aboard the vessel.

The Coast Guard, in a joint statement with Georgia authorities, said it will not release any further information on the incident until the investigation is complete.
