Missing Briton's parents in America

The parents of a Disney cruise ship worker who went missing off the coast of Mexico have flown out to join the search

The parents of a woman who went missing from a cruise ship off the coast of Mexico are to meet investigators over her disappearance.

Rebecca Coriam, 24, from Chester, was last seen aboard the Disney Wonder on Monday. She failed to report for her scheduled shift the following day.

She was working as a youth worker on the vessel which left Los Angeles last weekend for a week-long cruise.

The ocean liner has returned to dock in Los Angeles where her parents, Michael and Ann, from Guilden Sutton, were waiting to hear the latest on the inquiry.

Police in the Bahamas - where the Disney Wonder is registered - are heading the probe.

Mr and Mrs Coriam flew out to the United States earlier this week, along with Miss Coriam's cousin, Trish Davies, as concerns grew for their daughter.

Ms Davies told reporters in Los Angeles that the family had been told Miss Coriam made a phone call from the ship shortly before she was reported missing.

The missing woman's sister, Rachael, and uncle, John Jennings, appealed for more information on Friday about the disappearance of Miss Coriam - known widely to her family and friends as Becca.

Mr Jennings told the Chester Chronicle: "She came back for her granddad's funeral about six weeks ago - that's the last time she was home.

"She talks to us through Skype and Facebook all the time. I remember her mum had put something on Facebook and she didn't reply after about 12 hours, that was unusual for Rebecca."
