Cruise Passenger Reported Missing – Ship Returns to Miami

Last seen on the ship the morning before Carnival Conquest docked, Kevin McGrath, 26, has still not been located.

A man has gone missing after a Carnival cruise ship, the Carnival Conquest docked in Miami, Florida with police and federal officials trying to locate his whereabouts.

Kevin McGrath, 26, was last seen aboard the Carnival Conquest cruise ship in his cabin at 2am on Monday by his brother, said Carnival in a statement. The Coast Guard are still searching around the Port of Miami and along the South Florida shore to try and find Mr McGrath.

Mr McGrath was supposed to meet his family for breakfast on the ship before it docked at Port Miami, but never turned up, authorities said. A missing persons report was filed by his family at 7am, and the man “was not located on board despite an “extensive search.”

The Miami-Dade police issued a missing person alert Tuesday morning for Mr McGrath. He was last seen wearing a black shirt, shorts and grey trainers. He is 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing 170 pounds, and has brown hair and brown eyes. Police also added he “may be in need of services.”

After Mr McGrath could not be located aboard the cruise ship, the Coast Guard was contacted and Miami police officers joined the search.

“A search of the ship’s cameras and security devices did not indicate he went overboard,” a police spokesperson told The Post.

Carnival Conquest had just returned from a four-day sail around the Bahamas, before returning to Miami. The ship was cleared by the police in order for Carnival Conquest to set sail again, and is now back in the Bahamas for its next trip, according to CruiseMapper.
