Passenger missing from cruise ship
A 74-year-old retired electrician has been declared missing by the crew of the "Genting Dream". His disappearance was discovered only after the ship returned to Singapore on Aug 7, 2019. Mr Goh Hai Peng did not claim his passport during disembarkation after the ship docked in Singapore on Aug 7. Crew members then searched the ship, and, when it proved futile, reported Mr Goh as missing to the Singapore police. Police officers later boarded the ship to conduct investigations. Goh, who was travelling alone, had embarked on Aug 4 on a four-day, three-night cruise which included stops on the islands of Penang and Langkawi in Malaysia, on Aug 5 and 6 respectively. The ship's surveillance footage showed his father entering his cabin at about 7 p.m. on the first day of the cruise in the Malacca Strait. The cabin has a balcony. Video footage did not show him leaving his cabin the entire cruise. Cruise operator Dream Cruises stated that at 3 a.m. on Aug 5, surveillance cameras captured what appeared to be a "whitish figure" falling into the sea. All belongings, which Dream Cruises has returned to the family, were found intact in the cabin. The authorities in Singapore and Malaysia, including the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, have been notified about Mr Goh's disappearance. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Police Coast Guard and the Singapore High Commission in Kuala Lumpur are rendering assistance to the family. Dream Cruises was working closely with the respective authorities and will inform the family members should there be any updates from the authorities on the reported incident.Upload News
