Ohio woman missing from cruise ship

MIAMI (AP) — Authorities are investigating the disappearance of an Ohio woman who was reported missing Monday from a Carnival Cruise Lines ship.
The 36-year-old woman, whose identity was not released, had been on a four-day cruise to Key West and Mexico.

The Miami-based cruise line said relatives last saw the woman early Sunday but did not report her missing until Monday, when the ship returned to Miami. FBI spokeswoman Judy Orihuela said, however, that she was not aware of any delay in reporting the disappearance.

"It doesn't look like foul play," said Orihuela, whose agency is investigating the case.

The disappearance from the Carnival cruise ship Imagination was the latest missing person case involving a cruise this year.

Elizabeth Galeana, 22, of Naples, Fla., apparently fell off a cruise ship in July and drowned. Her body was found off the coast of Italy last month. In May, Daniel DiPiero, 21, of Canfield, Ohio, fell off a cruise ship to the Bahamas after a night of heavy drinking with friends.

The International Council of Cruise Lines, an industry lobbying group, reported earlier this year that a review of data from 15 lines showed 24 reports of missing people between 2003 to 2005.

One of the highest-profile cases involving a cruise ship disappearance occurred last summer, when George Allen Smith IV, 26, of Greenwich, Conn., vanished from his honeymoon cruise in the Mediterranean after an apparent late night of drinking. Bloodstains were found on a canopy that covers lifeboats. No one has been charged and no body has been found.

MIAMI -- Authorities are investigating the disappearance of an Ohio woman who was reported missing Monday from a Carnival Cruise Lines ship.

Tammy Grogan, 36, of Toledo, was traveling with her 14-year-old son on a four-day cruise to Key West and Mexico.

According to family members, Grogan and her son spent much of Sunday together. Then, Grogan went to dinner while her son stayed in the cabin, relatives said.

When Grogan's son awoke on Monday morning, his mother was not there, NBC 4 reported.

Grogan had still not been seen when the ship docked in Miami on Monday afternoon, so her son reported her missing.

Carnival authorities released a statement on Tuesday, saying that "all proper authorities have been notified. At this time, no foul play is suspected.

"Carnival has provided members of its Special Assistance Team to lend assistance and support to the family. Carnival extends its heartfelt sympathies to the family and loved ones of the missing individual."

Initially, the ship was searched, and the crew was questioned.

Officials also said that no water search was conducted because the distance the ship traveled in one day was so immense.
