John was planning on coming home to us. Relaxing: But an increasing number of people have mysteriously vanished at sea while on a cruise picture posed by models. At first, Mrs Halford, 46, believed that her husband, with whom she was about to celebrate their silver wedding anniversary, would turn up.

But, as time has passed, her hope has nearly all gone. I am told there are sharks in the area: it is very painful to think about. The rails on cruise ships are at least 3ft 6in high, which makes it incredibly difficult for anyone — even someone who might be drunk or ill — to pitch overboard. With no clues as to where or how her husband vanished, Mrs Halford is struggling to rebuild her life.
After taking time off work after John went missing, she has now had to return to her job as a medical secretary to pay the bills and support the children. We are in limbo. What do we do? Should we hold a funeral? The parents of year-old Rebecca Coriam, who went missing from a Disney cruise liner in March this year, can empathise with the tumult of emotion Mrs Halford is experiencing. Last Monday, Mike and Ann Coriam met MP Mike Penning, the Under-Secretary of State for Transport, who has responsibility for maritime issues, to discuss a change in the law that would allow UK authorities to investigate cases of British nationals who go missing on vessels while abroad.
At the moment, investigations are handled from where the ship is registered. A single policeman in the Bahamas, where the ship is registered, is investigating her disappearance. Miss Coriam was working on the ship as a youth activities coordinator. She was last seen by a work colleague at around 5.
CCTV footage on the ship shows Rebecca walking into shot with her hands in her back pockets, as was her habit.

After that, there were no further sightings of her. Her credit card is missing, but has not been used. It must be someone who knows her, who knows what the original password was. Sabine and her husband Ludwig boarded the ship at Southampton on December 17, , for a two-week cruise to the Canaries and Madeira.

One night, the pair went to bed at about midnight in room The next morning, when Ludwig awoke, his wife was not in the cabin. She was never seen again. Had something sinister befallen her; or could she be among those who are suspected of having taken their own life while on a cruise ship? Just this week, there was precisely one such incident. The passengers were preparing to disembark when the announcement was made.
A passenger was missing. No one was permitted to leave the ship until the police, who were waiting at the quay, had completed an onboard investigation. Although they will not reveal what it said, Mr Hemsley appears to have decided that he wished to die, and wanted to spend his final days amid the serenity of the Norwegian fjords. His disappearance echoes that of another elderly Briton who vanished from the same Fred Oslen ship, the Balmoral, last October.
The year-old unnamed man had been on a three-week cruise in the Adriatic with his wife. She woke in the early hours when the ship was about 45 miles south of the Lizard in Cornwall and saw that her husband was missing. After she alerted the crew, and a search of the 43,tonne vessel had established he was not on board, an air-and-sea search involving British and French coastguards and two warships in the area was launched.
Nearly one year on, there is no body and no answer to the question the family keep asking themselves: what happened? Two eerily similar disappearances, then, on the same ship. CCTV footage shows the unnamed woman, who was on holiday with her husband, climbing over her cabin balcony in the early hours and falling into the sea. Thomson Cruises, the company Mr Halford went on holiday with, says it has been assisting Thames Valley police and the Foreign Office in Egypt with their inquiries, and acknowledges that it may not have given Mrs Halford as much support as it could have done.
But Mr Halford remains missing, as does Rebecca Coriam and countless others. Most of these people disappeared on black nights, far out at sea. Precisely what happened to them all are mysteries that look unlikely ever to be solved.
