Investigators with the Special Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division are conducting an investigation into the circumstances surrounding a crew member who is missing from the Queen Mary 2.
Information received to date leads investigators to believe that the 26-year-old male crew member from Chile may have gone overboard early on the morning of Saturday, August 15 while the Queen Mary 2 was off the coast of Newfoundland.
Halifax Regional Police is considered the agency of jurisdiction given that Halifax was the Queen Mary 2’s next scheduled port of call. This matter was referred to our Integrated Criminal Investigation Division to explore the circumstances surrounding this missing person file. The Queen Mary 2 arrived in Halifax this morning, and investigators are attending the ship today to gather evidence and speak to people who may have had contact with the crew member prior to him going missing. Investigators will also be liaising with other agencies as required.
