On September 9, 2018, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Newfoundland and Labrador were notified that a male passenger on the Cruise Ship AidaLuna was believed to be missing from the vessel. This event occurred at sea, in Canadian jurisdiction. Unfortunately, a multi-agency coordinated effort to locate the missing person was unsuccessful.
In such instances, the RCMP initiates a missing person investigation. This investigation includes examination of the scene, witness interviews, and the collection of all other available evidence.
In this instance, the RCMP has determined the matter was non-criminal in nature. The RCMP does not normally discuss non-criminal matters. For that reason, and out of respect for the family, the RCMP will not be releasing further details regarding this investigation.
