Contact made with two of the three missing US nationals

Contact has been made with two of the three US nationals who failed to return to the cruise ship which they arrived in Jamaica on at the Ocho Rios cruise pier in St Ann.

The police reported that the visitors, Glen Triston, 35, and Tricia Tahecia Forrester, 24, both of New York; and Clinton Hill, 42, of North Carolina, were last seen on Wednesday departing the Carnival Sensation cruise ship in Ocho Rios.

They reportedly had luggage which were said to have been destined for family members in Jamaica.

Following the report of them gone missing, investigations by Loop News revealed that two of the visitors have made contact with officials from the United States Embassy in Kingston, to inform them that they are okay.

Police in St Ann have confirmed the information, but did not give the names of the visitors who made contact with the US authorities.

“We can confirm that contact was made with two of the visitors, and all the necessary agents have been engaged in terms of the embassy,” said Senior Superintendent of Police, Michael Smith.

The police said they are now trying to locate the third visitor.

The police said the news of the correspondence with two of the visitors has helped to reduce wide spread concerns that were raised after reports began to circulate that the visitors went missing.

The police said their investigation so far has indicated that the visitors left the ship and failed to return when the vessel was ready to leave the island.

As a result a missing person report was filed with the police.
