Missing


Reported this day in 1950:

WOMAN PASSENGER LOST OVERBOARD FROM LINER

NEW YORK --(AP)-- The Cunard liner Queen Mary reported yesterday that a woman passenger is missing and presumed lost overboard.

The Coast Guard said the information was radioed by Capt. Harry M. Dixon, who said the woman could not be located.

Neither the Coast Guard nor Cunard offices here received any further details, except that the liner had sent out a message to other vessels saying "Woman overboard. Keep lookout."

The Queen Mary, due here at 3:30 p.m. today, messaged from a position about 110 miles south of Sable Island off Halifax, Nova Scotia.
