Local news in Jamaica is reporting 2 American cruise ship passengers are missing. Local Police are looking for 33-year-old Hayden Gerson and 32-year-old Alisha Frank after they went missing from one of the world’s largest cruise ships on Tuesday, April 26.

The Americans were cruising onboard Oasis of the Seas which is operated by Royal Caribbean. The huge vessel was making a port of call at Falmouth, Jamaica when they never got back to the ship before it departed at around 7pm. Police have said they were both planning on making a trip to Montego Bay while visiting the island. Montego Bay is just a 40 minute drive away to the west. They both disembarked Oasis of the Seas at approximately 9:26am for the trip.
