Mysterious cases of passengers disappearing from cruise ships

Cruise ships frequently lose passengers and crew members. The standard course of action is to simply continue on their journey, unless instructed to stop by the local coast guard. However, the coast guard is often only notified of the incident several hours after the individual has been reported missing on board. Consider this: cruise ships carry thousands of people, many of whom are intoxicated, and there are no police to be found. While there are security staff, they ultimately answer to the cruise ship company, whose primary focus is maximizing profits. Although efforts are made to locate missing individuals, there is a limit to how long the search can go on before the person is presumed dead. Click through the gallery for stories of passengers who disappeared on cruise ships, never to be found again.

The most dangerous cities in America

Choosing a place to settle involves considering various factors; safety is paramount for families. But perceptions of crime can sometimes be disconnected from reality. Many crimes go unreported, affecting the accuracy of available data. Employment rates also contribute to a location's crime rate. The FBI's crime classification distinguishes between violent and property crimes, with the latter being more common. In 2019, there were 2,109.9 property crimes per 100,000 people, compared to 379.4 violent crimes. The introduction of the National Incident-Based Reporting System in 1988 has expanded the scope of crime data, offering details like the time, location, and weapons used. It also includes demographic information about victims and offenders. Mass shootings remain a grave concern, with hundreds of casualties over the years. In this gallery, we explore the most dangerous cities in the US in 2023 (so far), focusing on violent crimes. Click on to discover them.
