‘My mother could not swim’: Son of passenger who fell overboard cruise ship Spectrum of the Seas

singapore cruise missing lady

SINGAPORE – Monday was to have been the last day of their four-day cruise, with Mr Jakesh Sahani and Madam Reeta Sahani on their way back to Singapore from Penang aboard the Spectrum of the Seas.

But some time in the middle of the night, Mr Jakesh, 70, woke up to find his wife missing from their room.

The retiree tried to locate his 64-year-old wife on the sprawling cruise ship but failed, so he informed the crew. They later told him the vessel’s overboard detection systems had been alerted that something had fallen from the ship into the Singapore Strait.

Mr Jakesh’s son, Mr Apoorv Sahani, who was not on the cruise, recounted the episode in a phone call with The Straits Times on Monday night.

The 39-year-old architect said his family members, who are from India, are still in the dark about his mother’s status. In a flustered voice, he told ST that his mother could not swim, and that his father was made to go through an interview with the police that lasted a few hours.

“We’ve asked to see the CCTV (closed-circuit television) footage, but so far we’ve not received anything yet for us to confirm that it was her. All we know is that the ship’s crew thinks she jumped,” he said.

“Eventually my father was told to get down from the ship because there was another cruise that was going to take place, but we think she may still be on the ship, stuck somewhere.”

Mr Apoorv added: “She was on a holiday enjoying herself and then this whole thing happened. It doesn’t make sense.”

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) said in a statement on Monday night that the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) Singapore was notified about the incident at about 7.50am.

The passenger was on board the Cyprus-flagged Spectrum of the Seas, and had fallen overboard, although no further details were provided.

“MRCC Singapore is coordinating the search and immediately issued navigational safety broadcast to vessels in the Singapore Strait and vessels in port to keep a lookout for the missing person and report any sightings to MRCC Singapore,” said the statement.

It added that the vessel was berthed earlier in Singapore to support the investigations and had departed at around 4.30pm.

Checks on marine tracking website Marine Traffic showed that it is currently bound for Nha Trang in Vietnam.

In response to queries from ST, a spokesman for Royal Caribbean, which operates the vessel, said the incident was reported to the local authorities immediately.

The company declined to comment further, citing the privacy of the guest and the family, but said its team is offering support and assistance to them.

According to cruise tracking website CruiseMapper, Spectrum of the Seas is the first Royal Caribbean cruise ship belonging to the Quantum-Ultra class – a larger, upgraded version of the Quantum-class. It has 2,137 staterooms and can cater for up to 4,819 passengers, with 16 decks, 18 dining options, four swimming pools and 10 outdoor jacuzzis.

Indian woman who fell off cruise ship has died; son says CCTV footage confirms it

A 64-year-old Indian woman, who fell from a cruise ship into the Singapore Strait on Monday, has died, one of her sons said in a social media post.

“With the footage, we have unfortunately learnt that my mother has passed away,” Vivek Sahani said Tuesday after having seen the closed-circuit television footage from the Spectrum of the Seas, the luxury cruise vessel his mother Reeta Sahani and father Jakesh Sahani were on.

The couple's other son Apoorv Sahani had said on Monday that his mother could not swim.

The High Commission of India in Singapore said on Tuesday that it has been in touch with the woman's family since it was informed of the incident.

“We are also in close contact with Singaporean authorities to address related issues and are facilitating legal procedures,” the High Commission said Tuesday night.

HCI has also reached out to the India head of the Royal Caribbean cruise company to extend all cooperation. We remain fully committed to supporting the family in this testing time.(2/2) — India in Singapore (@IndiainSingapor) August 1, 2023

The High Commission has also contacted the India head of the Royal Caribbean cruise company to extend cooperation and reiterated that it is fully committed to supporting the family during this period of time.

The Indian couple was on a four-day cruise on the Spectrum of the Seas which was on the way back to Singapore from Penang on Monday morning when the 70-year-old Jakesh woke up to find his wife missing from their room.

Meanwhile, the Singapore Police Coast Guard and the Republic of Singapore Navy are assisting in the search, covering the stretch of Singapore port waters and the Singapore Strait. It is a 113-km long and 19-km wide busy shipping route between the Strait of Malacca and the South China Sea with Singapore on the north of the channel.

A woman is presumed dead after seemingly going overboard while traveling on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship.

According to a statement from the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore, the "Cyprus-flagged passenger vessel" Spectrum of the Seas was traveling through the Singapore Strait on Monday when a passenger allegedly went overboard.

Royal Caribbean

Reeta Sahani, 64, was on a cruise with her husband, Jakesh Sahani, 70, when she suddenly disappeared from the ship, The Straits Times (an English-language Singapore newspaper) and The Indian Express (a news media company in India) reported.

Jakesh realized his wife was missing upon waking up Monday morning local time, per the reports. He allegedly searched the ship for Reeta but was unable to locate her.

Apoorv Sahani, Reeta’s son, said on X that his mother had died and that staff claimed she had jumped from the ship. Royal Caribbean has shared footage from the ship with the family, he claimed.

Royal Caribbean did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

“She was on a holiday enjoying herself and then this whole thing happened,” Apoorv, 39, told the Times . “It doesn’t make sense.”

Crew members allegedly said a falling object had been detected by the ship's overboard detection systems, according to the Times . A spokesperson for Royal Caribbean said the incident was immediately reported to authorities.

Reeta was unable to swim, according to her son, who said his father was subjected to an hours-long interview with police after his mother’s apparent death.

The Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre of Singapore “is coordinating” a search for the missing woman, according to the MPA’s statement.

In the meantime, Apoorv said he is grateful for the outpouring of support that he and his family have received in the wake of the tragedy.

“Thank you for showing your overwhelming support in this time of distress for my family & I will forever be grateful,” Reeta’s son wrote on X. 

Built in 2019, Spectrum of the Seas is 1,138 feet in length and can carry approximately 4,800 passengers, according to CruiseMapper.com . 

The vessel — which is described as Royal Caribbean’s first cruise ship of the "Quantum-Ultra class” — includes 2,137 staterooms, 16 decks, 18 dining options and more.

Search efforts for the missing 64-year-old woman who fell from a cruise ship into the Singapore Strait on Monday morning are ongoing, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) said on Tuesday, but one of her sons conceded that she had died.

In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Mr Vivek Sahani said the family had seen closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera footage from the Spectrum of the Seas, which his mother and father had been on before the tragic incident.

“With the footage we have unfortunately learnt that my mother has passed away,” said Mr Sahani, the co-founder of Goila Butter Chicken, a restaurant chain with multiple outlets in India and one in London.

Thanking people for the support shown during the harrowing past two days, he added that it was ironic how Tuesday was also his mother’s birthday.

Madam Reeta Sahani’s body has not been found, however, with MPA deploying two patrol craft to help in the search in Singapore’s waters.

An additional 22 commercial vessels had also responded to the authority’s request to assist in the lookout.

MPA added that the Singapore Maritime Rescue and Coordination Centre (MRCC) is also coordinating its efforts with the Indonesia Search and Rescue agency, Badan Nasional Pencarian dan Pertolongan, which has deployed three craft.

“MRCC Singapore continues to issue navigational safety broadcast to vessels in the Singapore Strait to keep a lookout for the missing passenger,” MPA said.

A 64-year-old Indian woman who allegedly jumped off a cruise ship sailing through the Singapore Strait is feared to have died.

The woman, identified as Reetha Sahani, was onboard the Royal Caribbean Cruise's "Spectrum of the Seas" vessel with her husband when she went missing on 31 July. They were on a four-day cruise.

The couple was on their way back to Singapore from Penang when her husband, Jakesh Sahani, woke up in the middle of the night to find his wife missing.

Mr Sahani tried looking for his wife but was informed by the crew that the vessel’s overboard detection systems had been alerted that someone had fallen from the ship into the Singapore Strait.

According to their son Apoorv Sahani, the cruise staff claimed she jumped off the ship but they did not provide any video footage.

"We’ve asked to see the CCTV (closed-circuit television) footage, but so far we’ve not received anything yet for us to confirm that it was her. All we know is that the ship’s crew thinks she jumped,” he told The Straits Times on Monday.

They are "washing their hands off", Mr Sahani tweeted on Monday, seeking help from India's foreign ministry and the prime minister's office.

His father was eventually told to get down from the ship. “She was on a holiday enjoying herself and then this whole thing happened. It doesn’t make sense," the son added.

Mr Sahani later on Tuesday shared that his mother has died after the cruise liner eventually shared the surveillance footage. He did not elaborate about the cause of death, but said a search for the body was underway.

"Would request you guys to give us some privacy as we mourn her loss. Ironically, today is also her birthday," Mr Sahani added.

The Indian high commission in Singapore said it had been in touch with the woman’s family since it was informed of the incident. "We are also in close contact with Singaporean authorities to address related issued and are facilitating legal procedures," the high commission tweeted.

Port authorities in Singapore said the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre Singapore was notified about the incident at about 7.50am. The Singapore navy and the coast guard were assisting in the search operation, covering the stretch of the 113-km long strait.

The incident was reported on Monday with Reeta Sahani and her husband Jakesh Sahani on their way back to Singapore from Penang aboard the Spectrum of the Seas

A 64-year-old Indian woman, who was on board a cruise ship sailing through the Strait of Singapore from Penang, the northern island state of Peninsular Malaysia, has died, her family said on Tuesday a day after she was reported “missing”. Reeta Sahani’s family had sought help from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) after they accused the cruise company of “washing their hands off”.

Reeta and her husband Jakesh Sahani were traveling on the Spectrum of the Seas cruise operated by Royal Caribbean. They were on their way back to Singapore from Penang on Monday, which was also the last day of their four-day cruise.

Jakesh, 70, woke up to discover that his wife was missing from their room, according to a report by The Straits Times .

Despite his efforts, the retiree was unable to locate his wife on the sprawling cruise ship. Subsequently, he informed the ship’s crew about the situation. They, in turn, informed him that the ship’s overboard detection systems had been activated, indicating that something had fallen from the vessel into the Singapore Strait.

The busy route known as the Singapore Strait is 113 kilometers long and 19 kilometers wide. It lies between the Strait of Malacca and the South China Sea, with Singapore situated to the north of the channel.

Cruise “washing their hands off”

In a tweet, Jakesh’s son, Apoorv Sahani, who wasn’t on the cruise in a tweet stated that while the cruise staff claimed that she jumped, they have not shown them any footage and are “washing their hands off” from the matter.

1/2 My mother was travelling in Royal Carrribean cruise (spectrum of the seas) from Singapore. She has gone missing from the ship since this morning. Cruise staff are saying she jumped, but they have not shown us any footage and are washing their hands off @DrSJaishankar — Apoorv Sahani (@SahaniApps) July 31, 2023

The 39-year-old architect said the cruise didn’t carry out any rescue operation and off-boarded his father. Accusing the company of being “inhumane” he requested urgent help from the Indian government.

Indian Government Responds

The Indian High Commission in a series of tweets said it is in “constant touch with the Sahani family since the news of the unfortunate incident reached us”. It is also in close contact with Singaporean authorities to address related issues and is facilitating legal procedures.

The mission said it has also reached out to the India head of the Royal Caribbean cruise company to extend all cooperation. “We remain fully committed to supporting the family in this testing time,” the High Commission said.

My Mother Couldn’t Swim, Says Son

Speaking to the publisher, he said his mother could not swim, and that his father was made to go through an interview with the police that lasted a few hours.

“We have asked to see the CCTV footage, but, so far, we have not received anything yet for us to confirm that it was her. All we know is that the ship’s crew thinks she jumped into the water,” Apoorv was quoted as saying.

Explaining his father’s off-boarding, he said while Jakesh was asked to leave, Apoorv said his mother could be stuck somewhere. “Eventually my father was told to get down from the ship because there was another cruise that was going to take place, but we think she may still be on the ship, stuck somewhere,” he said.

“She was on a holiday enjoying herself and then this whole thing happened. It does not make sense,” he added.

Investigations Commence

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) issued a statement stating that the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) Singapore was notified about the incident at approximately 7.50 am on Monday. The incident involved a passenger on board the Cyprus-flagged Spectrum of the Seas who had fallen overboard. However, no further details were provided in the statement.

The vessel was berthed in Singapore earlier to facilitate investigations and departed at approximately 4.30 pm. As per tracking data from the marine tracking website Marine Traffic, the vessel is currently en route to Nha Trang in Vietnam.

A spokesman for Royal Caribbean stated that they reported the incident to local authorities without delay.

In a Tuesday evening update, Apoorv shared, the cruise finally shared the footage and “unfortunately, we have learned that my mother has passed away.” “Thank you for showing your overwhelming support in this time of distress for my family & I will forever be grateful,” he said.

He continued, “Would request you guys to give us some privacy as we mourn her loss. Ironically, today is also her birthday.”

According to cruise tracking website CruiseMapper, Spectrum of the Seas is the first Royal Caribbean cruise ship belonging to the Quantum-Ultra class a larger and upgraded version of the Quantum-class.

Reeta Sahani and her husband Jakesh Sahani, 70, were on their way back to Singapore from Penang aboard the Spectrum of the Seas on Monday, which was also the last day of the couple's four-day cruise, when she fell off from the vessel into the Singapore Strait.

The woman's son Vivek Sahani in an Instagram post wrote, "... we have unfortunately learnt that my mother has passed away. Would request you guys to give us some privacy as we mourn her loss."

He also thanked the ministry of external affairs and its minister S Jaishankar, and the Indian high commission in Singapore "for helping us out in getting this closure".

"Ironically, today is also her birthday," Vivek said.

The high commission said it was in touch with the grieving family and is facilitating visas for the family members.

Earlier, in a series of tweets on Tuesday, the mission said it was in "constant touch with the Sahani family since the news of the unfortunate incident reached us". The high commission was also in close contact with Singaporean authorities to address related issues and is facilitating legal procedures.

The mission said that it had also reached out to the India head of the Royal Caribbean cruise company to extend all cooperation.

"We remain fully committed to supporting the family in this testing time," the high commission had said.

The Singapore Strait is a 113-km long and 19-km wide busy shipping route between the Strait of Malacca and the South China Sea with Singapore on the north of the channel.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has deployed two patrol craft to help in the search in Singapore's waters, while 22 commercial vessels are also assisting in the search for the missing passenger, the Channel News Asia reported.

"Assets from Singapore's Police Coast Guard and the Republic of Singapore Navy are also keeping a lookout. The search and rescue area covers the stretch of Singapore port waters and the Singapore Strait," the MPA said.

The Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) Singapore is also coordinating the search and rescue operations with Indonesia's search and rescue agency, Badan Nasional Pencarian dan Pertolongan (BASARNAS), who have deployed three craft to assist in the efforts.

"MRCC Singapore continues to issue navigational safety broadcasts to vessels in the Singapore Strait to keep a lookout for the missing passenger," the MPA said.

Earlier, in a press release on Monday, the MPA said that at about 7:50 am on Monday, the MRCC was notified that a passenger onboard the Cyprus-flagged passenger vessel, Spectrum of the Seas , had fallen overboard in the Singapore Strait while en route into Singapore.

"MRCC Singapore is coordinating the search and immediately issued a navigational safety broadcast to vessels in the Singapore Strait and vessels in port to keep a lookout for the missing person and report any sightings to MRCC Singapore," the release said.

The passenger vessel was berthed earlier in Singapore to support the investigation, and had departed Singapore at around 4.30 pm, the release said.

According to The Straits Times, the MPA has deployed two patrol craft to search for Reeta’s body in the waters, in addition to 22 commercial vessels being on the lookout.

The Singapore Police Coast Guard and the Republic of Singapore Navy are also assisting in the search, covering the stretch of Singapore port waters and the Singapore Strait.

Meanwhile, the Indian High Commission in Singapore tweeted that it is in constant touch with the Sahani family as well as Singaporean authorities “to address related issues and are facilitating legal procedures”.

The Commission said it has also reached out to the Indian head of the Royal Caribbean cruise company to extend all cooperation.

“We remain fully committed to supporting the family in this testing time,” it said on Tuesday.

Reeta who was onboard the Spectrum of the Seas ship was found missing by her husband Jakesh sometime in the middle of the night.

On the last day of the four-day cruise on Monday, a worried Jakesh informed the ship’s crew that he is unable to locate his wife.

The crew told him later that the ship’s overboard detection systems had been alerted that something had fallen from the vessel into the Singapore Strait — a 113 km-long channel between the Strait of Malacca in the west and the South China Sea in the east.

A 64-year-old Indian woman on board a cruise ship has gone missing as the ship sailed through the Strait of Singapore from Penang, the northern island state of Peninsular Malaysia.

The incident was reported on Monday with Reeta Sahani and her husband Jakesh Sahani on their way back to Singapore from Penang aboard the Spectrum of the Seas. Monday was also the last day of the couple's four-day cruise, reports said.

Jakesh, 70, woke up to find his wife missing from their room, according to a report by The Straits Times on Tuesday.

The retiree tried to locate his wife on the sprawling cruise ship but in vain. He later informed the ship's crew, who told him the ship's overboard detection systems had been alerted that something had fallen from the vessel into the Singapore Strait.

It is a 113-km long and 19-km wide busy shipping route between the Strait of Malacca and the South China Sea with Singapore on the north of the channel.

Jakesh's son, Apoorv Sahani, who was not on the cruise, said his family members are still in the dark about his mother's current status.

The 39-year-old architect said his mother could not swim, and that his father was made to go through an interview with the police that lasted a few hours.

“We have asked to see the CCTV footage, but, so far, we have not received anything yet for us to confirm that it was her. All we know is that the ship's crew thinks she jumped into the water,” the broadsheet quoted Apoorv as saying.

“Eventually my father was told to get down from the ship because there was another cruise that was going to take place, but we think she may still be on the ship, stuck somewhere,” he said.

Apoorv added, “She was on a holiday enjoying herself and then this whole thing happened. It does not make sense.” Meanwhile, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) said in a statement on Monday that the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) Singapore was notified about the incident at about 7.50 am.

The passenger was on board the Cyprus-flagged Spectrum of the Seas, and had fallen overboard, although no further details were provided, it said.

“MRCC Singapore is coordinating the search and immediately issued navigational safety broadcast to vessels in the Singapore Strait and vessels in port to keep a lookout for the missing person and report any sightings to MRCC Singapore,” said the statement.

It added that the vessel was berthed earlier in Singapore to support the investigations and had departed at around 4.30 pm.

Checks on marine tracking website Marine Traffic showed that it is currently bound for Nha Trang in Vietnam.

A spokesman for Royal Caribbean, which operates the vessel, said the incident was reported to local authorities immediately.

The company declined to comment further, citing the privacy of the guest and their family, but said its team is offering support and assistance to them.

According to cruise tracking website CruiseMapper, Spectrum of the Seas is the first Royal Caribbean cruise ship belonging to the Quantum-Ultra class – a larger and upgraded version of the Quantum-class.

It has 2,137 staterooms and can cater to 4,819 passengers, with 16 decks, 18 dining options, four swimming pools and 10 outdoor jacuzzis.

Indian woman missing from Singapore cruise ship found dead

The 64-year-old Indian woman who had gone missing after she fell overboard from a ship as it sailed through the Strait of Singapore has died.

Indian woman missing from Singapore cruise ship found dead

Singapore: The 64-year-old Indian woman who had gone missing after she fell overboard from a ship as it sailed through the Strait of Singapore from Penang, the northern island state of Peninsular Malaysia, has died, her son said on Wednesday.

Reeta Sahani and her husband Jakesh Sahani, 70, were on their way back to Singapore from Penang aboard the Spectrum of the Seas on Monday, which was also the last day of the couple’s four-day cruise, when she fell off from the vessel into the Singapore Strait.

  • Elderly Indian woman reported missing from cruise ship in Singapore waters

The Indian High Commission here in a series of tweets on Tuesday said it was in “constant touch with the Sahani family since the news of the unfortunate incident reached us”. The High Commission was also in close contact with Singaporean authorities to address related issues and is facilitating legal procedures.

The woman’s son Vivek Sahani in an Instagram post wrote, “… we have unfortunately learnt that my mother has passed away. Would request you guys to give us some privacy as we mourn her loss.” He also thanked the Ministry of External Affairs and its minister S Jaishankar, and the Indian High Commission here for “for helping us out in getting this closure”. “Ironically, today is also her birthday,” Vivek said.

The High Commission had earlier said that it had also reached out to the India head of the Royal Caribbean cruise company to extend all cooperation.

“We remain fully committed to supporting the family in this testing time,” the High Commission had said.

The Singapore Strait is a 113-km long and 19-km wide busy shipping route between the Strait of Malacca and the South China Sea with Singapore on the north of the channel.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has deployed two patrol craft to help in the search in Singapore’s waters, while 22 commercial vessels are also assisting in the search for the missing passenger, the Channel News Asia reported.

“Assets from Singapore’s Police Coast Guard and the Republic of Singapore Navy are also keeping a lookout. The search and rescue area covers the stretch of Singapore port waters and the Singapore Strait,” the MPA said.

The Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) Singapore is also coordinating the search and rescue operations with Indonesia’s search and rescue agency, Badan Nasional Pencarian dan Pertolongan (BASARNAS), who have deployed three craft to assist in the efforts.

“MRCC Singapore continues to issue navigational safety broadcasts to vessels in the Singapore Strait to keep a lookout for the missing passenger,” the MPA said.

Earlier in a press release on Monday, the MPA said that at about 7:50 am on Monday, the MRCC was notified that a passenger onboard the Cyprus-flagged passenger vessel, Spectrum of the Seas, had fallen overboard in the Singapore Strait while en route into Singapore.

“MRCC Singapore is coordinating the search and immediately issued a navigational safety broadcast to vessels in the Singapore Strait and vessels in port to keep a lookout for the missing person and report any sightings to MRCC Singapore,” the release said.

The passenger vessel was berthed earlier in Singapore to support the investigation, and had departed Singapore at around 4:30 pm, the release said.

Mom missing after falling overboard on cruise ship but her son believes she may be 'stuck'

Reeta sahani had been on holiday with her husband when she disappeared near singapore.

The son of a woman who remains missing after falling overboard on her Royal Caribbean cruise has expressed the belief she might actually be 'stuck' on the ship.

Jakesh Sahani had been on board the four-day Royal Caribbean cruise with his wife, Reeta Sahani, when he woke up in the early hours of 31 July to find his wife missing from their room.

The boat, the Spectrum of the Seas, was making its way from Penang, Malaysia to Singapore at the time, and after Jakesh reported his missing wife to crew he learned that the vessel’s overboard detection systems had detected that something had fallen from the ship into the Singapore Strait.

The cruise ship had been in the Singapore Strait when Reeta disappeared.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore released a statement to say that the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) had been notified that 'a passenger onboard a Cyprus-flagged passenger vessel, Spectrum of the Seas, had fallen overboard in the Singapore Strait while enroute into Singapore'.

"MRCC Singapore is coordinating the search and immediately issued navigational safety broadcast to vessels in the Singapore Strait and vessels in port to keep a lookout for the missing person and report any sightings to MRCC Singapore," the statement continued.

Though the authority indicated belief that a passenger had fallen overboard, Reeta's son Apoorv pointed out the family have 'not received anything yet' to confirm that it was his mother who had fallen from the ship.

“We’ve asked to see the CCTV footage, but so far we’ve not received anything yet for us to confirm that it was her. All we know is that the ship’s crew thinks she jumped,” he said.

The couple were travelling on the Spectrum of the Seas.

Apoorv added that his mom, who was from India, could not swim.

Jakesh stayed on the ship in the hope of finding his wife for as long as he could but eventually he had to leave to make way for a fresh wave of cruise passengers.

However, the family remain hopeful. Apoorv said: "We think she may still be on the ship, stuck somewhere.

"She was on a holiday enjoying herself and then this whole thing happened. It doesn’t make sense."

A spokesperson from Royal Caribbean said the incident was immediately report to local authorities, and said its team is offering support and assistance to the family.

“Out of privacy for the guest and their family, we have no additional details to share,” the company added. “Spectrum of the Seas sailed as scheduled Monday evening.”

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

An American teenager who vanished in Germany while on a cruise was found safe, his family said Saturday — three days after they feared he had been “lured away” when the ship docked.

Aydin Brown, 14, was last seen disembarking the Caribbean Princess cruise ship in Rostock-Warnemünde — about two hours north of Berlin — by himself Thursday morning after arguing with his grandmother, Fox News reported .

“We are delighted that Aydin Brown has been found safe and sound,” the cruise line told NBC News Saturday , adding that the teen was reunited with his family. 

“We extend our heartfelt gratitude to German authorities for their swift response and exceptional efforts in locating Aydin after he disembarked in Warnemünde last Thursday morning.” 

Local authorities released three photos of Brown during their search.

Two were surveillance footage images that showed the teen speaking with an unidentified man before the two walked toward Warnemünde Church, according to NBC News. 

Police had asked the man to report to them during the search, but it is unclear who he was or if he assisted in the Texas boy being found safe.

Before he was located, one of Brown’s cousins said the family thought he had been “lured away” by a stranger. 

“My worst nightmare continues to unroll,” Anne Yaktiyol wrote on social media. “Aydin remains missing. It appears once he left the ship in Warnemünde, Germany, he may have been lured away.”

American teen who disappeared in Germany after leaving Caribbean Princess cruise ship is found safe

A missing 14-year-old American boy has been found safe after he left a cruise ship that docked in Germany and disappeared, authorities said Saturday.

Aydin Brown was found unharmed at around 10 p.m. in Brandenburg, a city over two hours away from where he went missing in the port town of Rostock-Warnemünde on Thursday, local police said.

Brown was last seen exiting the Caribbean Princess cruise ship shortly after it docked on July 4 at the port of Warnemünde. Brown was taking the cruise with his grandmother when the pair reportedly got into an argument, which led Brown to leave the ship, police previously said.

Princess previously told Fox News Digital that they were working with local police to find Brown after the teen disembarked "without an escort."

Concerns grew over Brown’s whereabouts after family members posted on social media that the teen "may have been lured away" in their "worst nightmare" after he left the ship.

Police said investigators picked up the teen’s trail near Potsdam, a city on the border of Berlin, after "intensive investigation" and the evaluation of technical data.

Brown was found in Brandenburg, about an hour west of Berlin. Police said he was unharmed and accompanied by a 19-year-old whom he is believed to have met in Rostock.

At this stage in the investigation, police said there were no indications of a crime.

Brown’s family said in an update on social media that the 14-year-old was found safe, thanking everyone who continued to share updates during the ordeal.

"Thank You from the bottom of our hearts!" Amy Kopischke, a cousin of Brown wrote. "Our Prayers were answered and Aydin was found safe!!"
