Although I don't honestly think there is a "cover up" I also don't think the parents have received enough information to be able to allow themselves to let Rebecca go. However, I think this also happens in such tragic accidents as air plane crashes and murders where not all of the facts are present to every relative of every person that has died. I don't think it's Disney's "fault" but I can definitely see the parents wanting to know more than what they were told. I know if it were my child I would want to "see evidence/video/etc." to prove to me that she really is gone. Just my opinion though....

Thanks for sharing. I've come to the same conclusion (it took me long enough). And thanks also for your wonderful suggestion of the candle lighting. I saw the video of Rebecca's uncle talking about it and was honored to participate.

I was on the cruise that the CM disappeared from. It was an extremely sad day when she went missing but I believe DCL did everything they could to locate her on the ship as well as obtain information on what happened.

As I stated before on a post, as a passenger, I saw some things that Disney did to secure certain areas of the ship in regards to investigating Rebecca's disappearence. I am not going to post what they were as I do not have proof of why they did it and they have not announced it. In speaking with a friend on the ship who is a CM - she advised me what was said to fellow CMs in regards to those things.

I truely believe that her parents have been given all the information they can at this point. Often, there just isn't that much information to give. Things often do not make any sense to us and we obviously want to know more when there isn't anymore to give.

My heart is broken for Rebecca and her family. No matter what happened and how - it is a very sad situation and one that I hope to never have to go through with my family. I continue to pray for her family.

Thank you for the kind words, but it was no big thing on my part.......the Diz board members grabed the idea and ran with it.......I was a wonderful event!

As a parent, I would never have enough information about my child's untimely death. My head may know the truth but my heart would never give up the hope of seeing and touching my child one more time.

I truly believe Bex's family has been given everything - videos, interviews with CM, walking the ship but - their heart can't except the outcome. And the only person who can give them answers they need is not there. And only Bex can answer their question - Why?

Yes, it's a 'cover-up' -- the head is covering the heart so the pain won't be so great.

I think it's time we allow the family to grieve in private and peace. It's time this thread is closed.

This is most unfortunate. I saw this in the News last week.

My heart and prayers go out to her family.

Of course, I'm not sure what help the content of the phone call to someone off the ship would be in investigating something that happened on the ship.

And the latest says they dont have any knowledge of the conversation. Its very hard to say what they do or do not know at this point, but it is still very sad that there hasnt been any real news of her whereabouts.

It's being reported, the family has spoken to the girl, that Rebecca called.

I'm pretty sure I read that that the call was made to another friend on the ship and the parents have spoken to her as well. The person that Bex called also stated that she was upset at the time of the call but was better after talking to her. I would be crushed and no one can possibly imagine what this family is going through, having 3 daughters of my own and there is nothing worse than loosing or missing a child. I wish there were answers.. not for all of us that are wondering even though we are, but for the family so they can have closure.

<snipped from article dated 7april>

When they first found out Bex was missing it wasn't from the police but from the ship. "They said she had gone missing – they believed she had gone overboard and was presumed dead."

He said her parents have seen CCTV footage of what is believed to be the 24-year-old’s last phone call, but they are still totally unaware of what was said.


The Bahamas Police Force, who are only conducting the investigation because the ship flies their flag, have not informed the family if the youth worker returned to her cabin, which she shared with another youth worker, before she went missing.
