Amy Bradley

Amy Lynn Bradley, 23, went missing on March 24, 1998, from Curacao, Netherlands, Antilles. 

Amy had been on vacation with her parents and younger brother, aboard the Royal Caribbean International Cruise Line, Rhapsody of the Seas. Amy and her brother returned to their cabin at 3:30 a.m. on March 24 after dancing in the ship's disco. They sat on the balcony of their suite until 5:30 a.m.

Amy told her brother she planned to disembark the ship when she reached Curacao in the Netherlands Antilles to get cigarettes and Amy left the suite. Her brother stayed. Two passengers claim they saw Amy at 6:00 a.m. riding the elevator to the top deck. She was seen holding her room key, cigarettes, and lighter. She also had $100 in her pocket. 

The ship was readying to dock in Curacao the last time Amy was seen. At approximately 6:30 a.m. her family looked for her and found she was missing. The sliding glass door to her balcony was slightly opened, and her sandals were found inside. This was the last time she was ever seen.

Amy Bradley's parents immediately asked the ship's employees to prevent anyone from leaving until she was located, but they let people exit anyway. The family searched Curacao but found no sign of her.

Theories of her disappearance abound. Authorities do not know if she exited the ship willingly. Her family believes she may have befriended one of the staff on the ship and been coerced to leave or possibly drugged. There were rumors of human trafficking and maritime pirates in the area too.

Amy was strong swimmer and police do not believe she fell overboard as the ship was very close to shore. There would have been witnesses that that would have seen and heard a commotion.

Amy had spent time with a man named "Yellow," a member of the ship's band "Blue Orchid," and also met up with several waiters while on the cruise.  It is unknown if any of the men may have been involved in her disappearance. 


Though there is no evidence, authorities believe foul play is involved in Amy Bradley's disappearance. there is a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the recovery of Amy and information that leads to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the person (s) responsible.
