A cruise ship company’s disappearance has put the spotlight back on a mystery that has gripped the country for years.
The Canadian Maritime Safety Authority says the disappearance of a cruise ship from an Alaskan cruise line has created a new mystery.
The Alaskans said in a statement that the ship was lost in rough seas on Aug. 22 off the coast of Kamloops, B.C. It is unclear what happened to the vessel, which was registered to the Cruise Ships of the World company.
On Tuesday, the CMA released an update on the case.
It said it is aware of information from two sources regarding the disappearance and the search for the vessel.
It was not immediately clear if these sources had information that could assist the search, the statement said.
There is a possibility the vessel may have been sunk by a commercial vessel or that there may have be some other unknown cause, the report said.
It also noted that there is no indication of foul play.
