A man mysteriously disappeared from a Carnival Cruise ship just hours before the ship was due to arrive in Miami.
Kevin McGrath, 26, was a passenger on a Carnival cruise ship sailing from Miami to Bimini, Bahamas, over Labor Day weekend.
He was supposed to meet his family for breakfast Monday morning before the ship returned to Florida, but he never showed up.
Carnival Cruise contacted the Miami Police Department and Coast Guard to alert them to the mysterious disappearance, but the search turned up nothing.
Kevin’s sister Kristen McGrath posted on social media as authorities continue to search for her sibling, “My brother is missing!” He never got off the Carnival Conquest cruise ship. He has a family that loves him and we won’t rest until we find him.”

After Miami-Dade police searched the boat for McGrath without finding him, they cleared the cruise ship to set sail again and head back to the Bahamas.
Video footage did not show him disembarking with the other guests, adding to his mysterious disappearance.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the Miami-Dade Police Department at (305) 715-3300.
Mitchell Branch was a friend of McGrath’s through the military. After McGrath’s disappearance, he posted on Facebook, ‘The military was a bond that could never be broken.’ I pray you are well.’
Branch said, “Part of me wants to go to Florida and start my own search party.”
