Missing Harmony of the Seas Crew Member

The U.S. Coast Guard is reporting that 20-year-old Arron Hough who is a crew member and from the United Kingdom went missing yesterday on Christmas day.

The crew member apparently went overboard Harmony of the Seas which is one of the world’s largest cruise ships and operated by Royal Caribbean.

He went overboard when the Oasis-class vessel was around 267 miles northwest of Aguadilla, Puerto Rico in the eastern Caribbean. The Coast Guard using an airplane and cutter to search the region for him during what must be a very difficult time for his family, friends and fellow crew members on the cruise ship.

Harmony of the Seas is currently sailing a 7-night eastern Caribbean itinerary which departed Port Everglades, Florida on December 23. The vessel’s first port of call is at St. Maarten today, December 26 so the crew member went missing while the ship was sailing towards the well-known cruise destination.
