On March 24, 1998, 23-year-old Amy Lynn Bradley disappeared— a Royal Caribbean cruise ship en route to the island of Curacao.
The easiest explanation is that Bradley fell overboard and vanished beneath the ocean waves. But Bradley was a strong swimmer. She was a trained lifeguard. The ship was not far from shore. And there was no evidence that she’d fallen into the water.
Bradley’s disappearance seems much more sinister than a case of someone accidentally lost at sea. Ever since Bradley vanished, there has been a string of odd sightings of her -- or at least a woman who looks just like her, right down to her unique tattoos. In 2005, someone even sent her family a gut-wrenching photograph that suggested she had been trafficked into sexual slavery.
