CROMWELL, CT, United States (UPI) — Authorities in Turkey reportedly found blood in the cruise ship cabin of a Connecticut man, who has been missing from his Mediterranean honeymoon cruise.
Royal Caribbean officials earlier thought George Allen Smith IV, 26, may have fallen overboard last week after they spotted blood on an awning over a lifeboat, the New York Post reported.
Smith`s new wife, Jennifer Hagel, 25, told officials that he had not been in the cabin when she woke up July 5, and that she presumed he had gone out, the report said.
On Tuesday, authorities in Turkey said blood had also been found inside Smith`s cabin. Hagel was interviewed by Turkish authorities and allowed to return home to Cromwell, Conn., the cruise line said.
The couple was married in Newport, R.I. at the end of June and boarded the ship — Brilliance of the Seas — in Barcelona on June 29, the Post said.
Let us pray for his safety.
