42 Year Old Jason Gregory Rappe of Olympia, WA Missing Aboard the Holland America Cruise Ship Eurodam Traveling from St. Thomas (USVI) to the Bahamas
42 year old Jason Gregory Rappe of Olympia, WA has gone missing aboard the Holland America Cruise Ship Eurodam. It is believed that Rappe went overboard. He was reported missing by his wife Thursday. The Eurodam was traveling from St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands to the Bahamas when Rappe was reported missing. A search has begun for missing Jason Gregory Rappe. The Coast Guard activated a helicopter crew based out of the Air Station Borinquen on Puerto Rico and diverted the cutters Nantucket, a 110-foot patrol boat based in San Juan, and Decisive, a 210-foot cutter based in Pascagoula, MS, to search for Rappe.
The man, identified as 42-year-old Jason Gregory Rappe of Olympia, Washington, was reported missing Thursday by his wife from the Holland America cruise ship Eurodam. A baseball cap belonging to the passenger was found on one of the decks and he is believed to have gone overboard.
“At this point, we are actively searching,” Castrodad told The Associated Press. “We are hoping to find a survivor.”
The search continued Thursday night for a cruise ship passenger who was reported missing early Thursday morning, less than a day after his ship departed from a port call to St. Thomas.
Coast Guard search and rescue crews were searching for the passenger, a 42-year-old man from Washington, who reportedly disappeared from the Holland America Line cruise ship Eurodam early Thursday morning while the vessel was traveling from St. Thomas to the Bahamas, according to a press release from Coast Guard spokesman Ricardo Castrodad.
Castrodad said Thursday evening that the passenger had not been sighted and a search was ongoing.
