A cruise ship has gone missing in the Red Sea. A lifeboat with three people has been found and Search and Rescue operations are under way. There were 1300 people onboard the Slaam 98, including some returning pilgrims from the hajj to Mecca. Radar contact was lost at 7pm local time Thursday night.


CAIRO, Egypt (AP) -- An Egyptian cruise ship with 1,300 people on board has disappeared in the Red Sea off the Saudi coast, Egyptian maritime officials said Friday.

Lifeboats carrying people have been spotted near where the ship, the "Salaam 98," was last seen, maritime officials said.

Saudi and Egyptian naval vessels and helicopters were searching for the ship, which disappeared from radar screens shortly after sailing from the port of Dubah, western Saudi Arabia, at 7 p.m. local time on Thursday night, the maritime officials in Suez said.

Missing? How do they lose a cruise ship? Don't they have tracking on them or something? Unless it's sunk, which would be terrible.

I hope they find it and any survivors.
